This contemporary Australian holiday house forms part of a wandering path through the landscape from Perth to Nannup. This path dialogues with the landscape of intense forest, meandering river and rolling hills, each experience is carefully choreographed to enrich the occupancy of the house.

We were approached by a bachelor who had just bought a penthouse apartment in an upmarket suburb of Sydney’s East. The apartment occupied the entire top floor of a 1940’s building and had great views over Sydney harbour.

Bronte House 1

The client approached the architects to create house of their dreams on a site perched high over the Pacific Ocean, a home that was to make them feel like being on holiday every day. While the view was fantastic the site was very small and suffocated by overbearing neighbouring dwellings.

Design: Robinson Architects

Design: Anderson Architecture
Waverley Residence

The architects state that in meeting the client’s ambitious brief it was essential to ensure that sustainability was at the core of the design from the outset, despite site restrictions which demanded out of the box solutions to meet performance goals. The final design reconnects with the site, neighbourhood and geography and is a result of extensive computer modelling reinforcing passive solar design principles, leading to an 8 star thermal performance certification for the house.

Cowshed House, Sydney, New South Wales – 21 Aug 2013
Design: Carterwilliamson
Cowshed House Sydney
picture : Brett Boardman

The cowshed sat on a small parcel of land bounded on three sides by roads. The building was simple, essentially a long brick wall that held the urban edge of corner and street and returned to house a few bedrooms in the place of the former stalls. It was the most basic of accommodation.

Lubelso Home, Victoria – 21 Aug 2013
Design: Canny
Lubelso Home Victoria

This modern, contemporary residential design was commensurate to the surrounding built form whilst making a subtle statement with its distinctive elegant lines and evident attention to detail. The home sits proudly amongst other grand homes in the area and enhances the streetscape.

Design: Nic Owen Architects
Kew House
photo : Rhiannon Slatter

This design solution resulted in little change to the overall footprint, consisting of the removal of a late rear extension ‘meals room’ and replacing it with ‘the claw’. Aptly named by the owners the new family-room embraced the sloping land reaching up to the rear raised garden.

Under the Moonlight House, Victoria – 31 Jul 2013
Design: Giovanni D’Ambrosio
Under the Moonlight House Australia

This new residence tries to integrate itself in the site through use of materials that have been used before and that are part of local historical background. The house shape resembles typological archetypes used by country-men and cowboys that lived in the area.

Surry Hills Terrace House, Sydney, NSW – 15 Jul 2013
Design: Danny Broe Architect
Surry Hills Terrace House Australia

The brief given to the architects for this property was to maintain and preserve the lovely big rooms at the front of the house, while radically transforming the kitchen and bathroom at the back into a wonderful contemporary space, and to seamlessly blend inside and outside living spaces.

House in Mosman – 5 Oct 2012
This residential property is located in Mosman on a north facing slope looking across Sydney’s Middle Harbour to the Spit Bridge and Clontarf. The site falls away dramatically from a broad and densely landscaped verge on the street frontage, with a high sandstone cliff forming the southern boundary. The house is nestled into this cliff, shielding it from the street.

Brisbane Street Additions, Perth, Western Australia
Design: rad architecture

Brisbane Street Additions – 15 Aug 2012
Conceived as a riposte to the Local Authority’s requirement to superficially ‘decorate’ a large expanse of wall on the western boundary, rad architecture’s concept for the Brisbane Street Additions was drawn from the lifestyle of their clients.
