This new home was informed by our client’s experience living on the site. The design responded to a desire for a home that would allow a young family to have a seamless relationship with the native landscape of the site. Coastal winds, high saline conditions, bush fire regulations and traffic noise were all notable factors in shaping the nurturing diagram whereby the building form cradles a central garden room on the bushland side of the dwelling. The garden room became not only the pivot point for the communal spaces of the Whitebridge Garden House but also an all weather outdoor living room whose activity creates the heart of the home.
