HUNTERS HILL HOUSE FOR SEAMLESS OUTDOOR LIVING

We believe every house should have their own unique qualities. In this case and essential part of the brief was to create an outdoor dining area and lounge room that took advantage of the rear level block of land. This led to a design of the outdoor areas to coincide with the pool area, A glass floor bridges over the pool to allow for a large outdoor entertaining space and act as a reflection pond during the evenings.

The contemporary home provides the comforts of modern day living with an abundance of light yet its design aims to respect its streetscape and character of its surroundings.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MICHAEL NICHOLSON

We like to thank Michael Nicholso who has done a fabulous job in capturing the light, space and the architecture for our project in Gladesville. His understanding of effects of light on surfaces has led to a nice play on shadows within his photography. His photos have captured the contemporary design yet comfortable spaces in the open plan configuration.

 

This Gladesville residence designed by architect studioJLA, has been configured to provide flexible use of space to allow for ample space for everyday use yet be a perfect place for entertaining. The residence has been designed to maximise solar access with good cross flow ventilation. Yet the house has been designed with high thermal performance to be a contemporary yet sustainable designed dwelling.
