This was a project with another fantastic site. Located at Castlecrag NSW, it had an existing house located far down on the block, away from the neighbours which were built back up at street level. The design involved very substantial alterations and additions to the existing house and ultilized cues from the surrounding bush and the ethos of what Walter Burley Griffin first envisioned for the suburb. Sandstone, zinc, glass and concrete being the materials of choice. The sandstone base contains the bedrooms, while the upper level contains the Kitchen, W.C., a large flagstoned deck and the 'Grand Room' - the living/dining area of the house with operable doors front and rear to allow the whole house to open up so the curved roof is acting like a giant umbrella over the living spaces. Sadly, the client sold the site on, so it never went further than the sketches and 3D images you see here.
