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.
Cabarita residence by studioJLA ( Architect )
At studioJLA we are always exploring ways to improve our design and creative process and providing our clients with the visual tools to better understand of our vision for their project. In recent years, the traditional model has been replaced with 3d animation and perspectives which has transformed the visual experience and ability to resolve our design at all angles. However with advances in 3d printing technology, we wanted to see if the physical model could reshape or add to our creative and design process.
How has it added to our design process ? We think so. We have found clients able to connect with the 3d models which gives an overall view of the design and another way to appreciate the design and its form. The high level of detail which can be incorporated into the 3d models allows our clients to get a good appreciation of the spaces and the internal elements such as the furniture and joinery.
