New projects are regularly commencing in the studio. With each of these exciting opportunities we explore a series of design options where we continuously challenge ideas until it reaches a point where the project develops a distinct identity and begins to take on its own momentum. These are some of the projects as they are developing in the studio.

Balgowlah Heights Residence, Sydney – In Studio

We would like to introduce our latest project we are currently designing in Sydney. We have been producing projects in Sydney for more than 15 years and it’s an area we always enjoy working in. The city’s topology and climate encourages different conversations and ultimately requires a distinctive architectural response. The design for the Balgowlah Heights Residence has now moved from a concept stage to a defined plan and form. It has been a pleasure developing the ideas for the project with our clients who are enthusiastic and open to new ideas and willing to push the boundaries to create their family home. The proposed design is a series of stepped terraces that traverse the steeply sloping site and opens directly onto the foreshore of Reef Bay.
