Northbridge House is a contemporary dwelling located on the North Shore of Sydney, nestled in an Australian Bushland setting. The dwelling is approximately 350sqm and is designed to accommodate a modern family of four and their dog, including a home office to allow the owners to work from home, a pool and generous gardens.

The site slopes steeply away from the street, which allows the dwelling to nestle into the landscape, creating a private leafy oasis to the rear. The experience of entry and the transition from the city and suburbia to the rear oasis is central to the design of the home.

The exterior of the house is constructed from a robust masonry base and lightweight zinc and timber cladding above, offering a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Australian brick home. The transition into internal spaces is delineated by delicate timber joinery crafted from local Australian hardwoods that pick up the warm and natural tones of the surrounding bushland environment.

Views of the bushland are carefully framed from within, while filtered light from timber screens creates a dynamic and joyous internal environment that is constantly evolving throughout the day. The whole project took just under two years and was completed in May 2013.
