We often discuss the option of choice of construction with our clients, discussing the difference between light weight construction over bricks and mortar. Our project in Five Dock is an illustration of the benefits of light weight construction. With is soaring cantilevered roof over the open plan living outdoor area below with angular form is well suited for this form of construction. As with many homes with a large open plan configuration and large windows, it is often the lateral forces which need to be addressed. Hence the steel framed structure often provides the appropriate structural solution beyond the limits of timber framing.

We like to thank our client for opening their home for us to take some great photos of our project in Strathfield. We also like to thank Michael Nicholson for another great photo session capturing the space and light that is captured in this residence. The split level configuration and double storey voids allow the light to pass throughout the residence to create a relaxed environment with contemporary appeal.
