Large monolithic architectural details are something we try and bring into all our projects, it’s these details that allow us to be looser with wilder with our planting palettes and for the outcome to still feel considered. In this case, the benches allowed us to terrace the site creating activated zones to higher use of the functionality. Photography by Dan Hocking

In Cremorne, its out with the old and in with the new. This full home renovation included new kitchen & bathroom, flooring, full window & door replacements, new decking to rear, retaining walls, new driveway, fencing, external painting, new awnings, new roofing and gutters. Clients were very adaptable and lived in during the renovation with 2 young children. The old kitchen (not original) included a very cool unforgettable kelvinator oven dated back to 1970. Still turning out the Sunday Roasts ! It was like stepping back in time. The client and I had a hard time throwing it out but it had to go in the end.

The client's came to us wanting a design that was going to open up their small backyard and give them somewhere for their family to enjoy and entertain for many years to come. This project presented many technical challenges due to the levels required to comply with various building regulations. Clever adaptations such privacy screens, floating deck entry and hidden pool gate behind the raised feature wall were all design elements that make this project more suitable to the smaller area. The main design feature that was a key to the functionality of this pool was the raised infinity edge, with the pool wall designed to comply with current pool barrier standards. With no pool fence between the pool and house the space appears more open with the noise of the water falling over the edge into a carefully concealed balance tank adding a very tranquil ambience to the outdoor area. With the accompanying fire pit and sitting area, this space not only looks amazing but is functional all year round and the low maintenance fully automated pool cleaning system provides easy operation and maintenance.
