Boustred House


This project is located in Mosman on a north facing slope looking across Sydney’s Middle Harbour to the Spit Bridge and Clontarf. The site falls away dramatically from a broad and densely landscaped verge on the street frontage, with a high sandstone cliff forming the southern boundary. The house is nestled into this cliff, shielding it from […]

Bondi House


Huddled on a suburban street lined with semis and medium rise apartments, only the tanned surfers strolling by in thongs and bathers suggest that this Bondi home is only a short stroll from Australia’s most famous stretch of sand. The existing semi, hemmed in by its neighbours, was a dark, warren of rooms which turned their back on […]

Eastern Residence


The aim of the renovation was to enhance the use of the formal areas and modernise these spaces while retaining the Victorian character. Bathrooms were also renovated to accommodate the changing needs of a family with teenage and adult children. Previously renovated reproduction elements in the house were removed in preference of a new design approach, which highlights the […]

Price O’Reilly House


This two storey house has been built on a vacant block of land formerly occupied by two terrace houses. The street contains a mix of residential and commercial building types including terrace houses, warehouses and apartments of varying ages and scales. As it was to be a residential infill building the Local Council insisted that it read […]

Western Residence


The aim of the renovation was to create connections between the major living spaces by overlaying a new layer of elements to the existing fabric. The existing structure was robust, square and simple. Complexity was added by the new layers, all of which intentionally misaligned with the existing structure, like a series of lost puzzle pieces, forcing their way […]

Balmoral House


This 4 bedroom house is sited on an irregular shaped block of land on the slope above Sydney’s Balmoral Beach. The 2 side boundaries of the site are not parallel and there is a significant diagonal cross fall from southwest to northeast, in addition there are 4 substantial gum trees on the site which have all been […]

Cerise Residence


Retaining the existing building footprint was a key consideration for both economic and philosophical reasons. Building expansion was not an essential requirement and outdoor areas were already limited. New elements were layered over the existing structure, deferring to the building’s history while expressing its new resident’s needs through their distinct formal expression. The faceted and curved profiles of this new […]

Nth Sydney


As architects operating in a culture where the square meterage of floor plans seem to grow and grow, we are convinced that the biggest contribution we can make towards a sustainable built environment is the design and inhabitation of ‘fit’ buildings; buildings that are not simply ‘big’, but big enough and flexible enough to accommodate changing lifestyles. Our […]

House 20


House 20 presents a series of blades cantilevering over a bronze wall; pushing and pulling. A grassy knoll rises out of the earth below, being drawn up towards the jostling blades, and partially veiling the building’s elevation and under croft from the street’s vantage point. Below this point of arrival and shelter the offset rhythm […]

George Apartments
