Tasman View House is a low maintenance sleek home on the foothills of the Richmond Ranges. An extra thick insulated envelope of metal roofing and aluminium cladding wrap over elements of cedar shiplap and Fijian Kauri. These materials flow on to the inside.

Irresistible views to the west led to the idea of a shading “engawa”, or transitional deck. The timber shading screens slide anywhere along the deck to deal with low level sun. They add texture, shadow and create a feeling of enclosure even with all the doors open.

The entry is very much a Japanese “Genkan”; the external path blends into the public entry which formally steps up into the house. The rear courtyard is protected from any breeze and provides a balance to the expansive views.

All roof rain water is stored in water tanks buried in front of the house and all wastewater is treated on-site.

Bungalow-Style Additions to a 1890 Heritage Cottage

Despite some bungalow-style additions to its verandah, the street-facing south elevation of this Parnell cottage/villa remained largely faithful to the original 1890s form. To the rear, however, a miscellany of additions and alterations in a variety of architectural styles, had extended the dwelling with consequential modification to the original villa roof-line.

Chelsea Duplex Apartment in New York City

With a blissful color palette and a seamless mix of statement pieces, graphic artwork and ethnic accessories, this Chelsea duplex apartment oozes sophistication and elegance. The inviting and generously proportioned low-slung sectional in the living room makes the most of the high ceilings and natural light, and sets the tone for the rest of the scheme.
