Lower Sandy Bay 2011

We were approached by these young professional clients to upgrade and extend their 1950s weatherboard house close to the waterfront. Their desire to achieve an environmentally sound sensitive building for their expanding family was challenged by their almost inaccessible site. The resulting building form, composed of separately identifiable elements, has achieved the sunlight and views they were after while creating a living mechanism for the noughties!

We enjoyed being involved in every aspect of the project, from the building envelope though to the bespoke furniture. Clients like these are a treasure and with the craftsmanship of the builders the result was very satisfying.
