The brief

Our brief was to design a family home for four, reflecting the eclectic architecture of the suburb and inspired by the 1960s – flat roof, palm springs, lounge pool theme and shag art aesthetic vibe. Sustainability and a low carbon footprint are also of importance. Our clients wanted spaces in which to come together as a family and also private spaces for entertaining, music as well as privacy.

Our approach

A corner block with a 5m width, this site presented our team with many challenges as well as design opportunities. Through clever design we were able to deliver a 3 bedroom home with 2 indoor living spaces that is light filled and feels spacious through the use of lots of glazing, a strong indoor outdoor connection on ground as well as a private rooftop. . It has lots of cleverly designed storage and the 60’s theme is reflected in the internal & external materials and colours as well as some of the design features like a sunken lounge area.
