The spotted gum timber cladding is well underway at our project in Castle Hill. After some to and fro about on whether to stain the timber cladding as our original idea. We thought it would be a shame to not express the material in its natural colour and its timber grain.
Our alterations and additions in Five Dock is nearing completion and we are at the final stages of construction. The image of the carport with existing Californian bungalow beyond, illustrates how contemporary lines and elements can complement each other and make a positive contribution to the streetscape when carefully executed.
We have been given the opportunity to design for our client their dream home in Cabarita. Our brief was to design a contemporary residence which took advantage of its water views yet provide a home for their love of the outdoors for entertaining friends and family.
The residence is designed over 3 levels due to the sloping block provides an alfresco outdoor space connected to the pool and lawn area at the lower ground level. A grand open riser stairs connects the dwelling on all levels and acts as a light well to all floors. The open plan living design allows a flexible use of space for everyday living.
The residence designed to maximise light and ventilation yet articulated to detailed to give a sense of luxury.
