Architect's concept design - View from street
The clients approached us with the concept of a georgian home for their block in Northbridge, Sydney.
After spending time working out the best approval process, i.e. Development Application or via the NSW state governments exempt and complying development code we settled on the appropriate georgian dimensions.
For the design to work the existing house would have to be demolished and a basement garage would need to fit on the low side of the block.
One of the keys to this design was to create a traditional looking pitched roof but without exceeding the height restrictions. The design achieves this by hiding a flat roof to the rear that also provides the perfect eave and sun shading to the north for passive solar design.
DA approved by Willoughby council in June 2012.
