This new house is built on a tight corner block in Five Dock, overlooking a park and Canada Bay beyond. The house was designed for a family with three young boys - all now school aged.
The design of the house takes into account the unique corner position and maximises the access to both views across the park and northern aspect by stretching along the southern boundary – rather than occupy the middle of the block.
Overshadowing of neighbouring dwellings was minimised by curving the southern wall back into the main volume of the house and creating a double height circulation corridor – doubling as a study for the three boys and a dramatic front door and entrance to the home.
The living area and kitchen are located on the upper storey of the house, opening onto a large, covered outdoor entertaining area – which capitalise on the fantastic 270 degree views of surrounding parkland.
Working closely with the client to design joinery and select the interior finishes has resulted in a seamless project from outside to inside that functions perfectly for the site and for the inhabitants.
