Lilyfield House

Alterations and first & second storey additions to original shop building with three roof terraces. The project combines off-form concrete construction with cementitious cladding facade, grating screens and standing metal seam roof. The interior spaces are stacked around a high central void space with glazed roof, alternating with curved plasterboard ceilings. Spaces are characterised by off-form concrete ceilings and columns and wall portions, plywood walls and joinery and metal stairs against a white backdrop. Construction has just been completed July 2018.

Glebe Laneway House


Construction has started for additions to the main house and new Secondary Dwelling above a new double carport in a Heritage Conservation Area between Bridge Road and Reuss Street. The insertion, set amidst Glebe's prime Heritage buildings, is an interpretation of Reuss Street's simple historic stable form in modern materials, utilising steel structure, Equitone cladding and shutters, illuminated translucent walling and standing metal seam roof.

Carport Rejuvenation

After a sewer breakage, an 1970s carport required deep excavation for sewer replacement and a new concrete slab. This opportunity was used to add well-needed external storage and bin storage, give the carport a revamp and extend the hardwood timber topic through the rear yard.

Putney House

DA is being prepared for a double-storey street-front extension with three bedrooms, teenage retreat and garage, set on a deep block with lush, forest-like gardens on flood-prone land. 

The design will create a new face to the street whilst interconnecting the residence' previous modern rear extension and its Federation core. 

The challenging south-facing, wedged-in location of the extension is managed through a combination of a high central, spatially interactive light and ventilation trench, combined with lateral double-skin facades, allowing light and glimpses of sun deep into the spaces whilst maintaining privacy to close-up neighbouring buildings.
