Cloud house is a private home located at Bondi Beach. The concept was to maximise the opportunity for light to interact with the surfaces of the house, like the facets of a cloud. The Cloud house is open towards the East of the site to benefit from the morning sun, while the internal courtyard allows sun throughout the day to flood the double height living area.
This new house in a dense, beachside suburb required clever management of privacy and views. The Coogee Beachside house, for a young family, was to be robust, liveable and light filled but with a layering of spaces that provided flexibility, separation and privacy.
Three Piece House is a courtyard house, designed for a couple looking to downsize and live more simply. The project places a modest, single-storey house and a studio on its site. These buildings are skewed to follow the site’s boundaries, and cluster to create privacy on this exposed corner lot.
Iron Maiden House was designed for a family of five who wanted a home which celebrated the Sydney climate after returning from many years living in Hong Kong. The design delivers generous living and entertaining areas which flow to outdoor areas at ground level, while an elevated external corridor connects the children’s bedrooms which have outlook onto green spaces and the swimming pool.
With its heritage skin and sleek contemporary addition, the Doorzien House challenges perceptions of traditional houses through its approach to renewal and reconstruction. By integrating cutting-edge energy and material technologies with the original building fabric, the design pulls together new and old in a house for the next hundred years.
