The search for street appeal and something fresh.
At the end of this St Ives cul-de-sac, it’s time to go for a tired 70’s brick veneer project home.
This leaves a site that is bushfire affected, slopes down to bushland and retains the existing pool and cabana.
Our new home design is for a series of skillion roofed boxes stepping down the hill.
A new orientation allowed for plenty of north sun, larger usable site area to the north and maintained the beautiful bush views.
To build in a BAL-40 bushfire area we needed to avoid using any external timber, so we opted for Hardy’s Axon wall cladding, AWS Vantage aluminium windows and doors with a colorbond roof / fascias, and natural stone features.
Concept design stage completed.
