Bundeena House, Royal National Park NSW
The site for the Bundeena House was one of last built upon lots in the subdivision of a former Uniting Church campsite on the western side of the steep hill behind Bundeena Beach in the Royal National Park. The owner, who worked as a carpenter on the construction of the first four houses in the original subdivision in 2007, was given the opportunity to return to Bundeena and purchase this challenging block 10 years later.

Bluff Farm House, rural New South Wales, about four hours from Sydney

Bluff Farm House
In the tradition of isolated rural buildings, the house is conceived as a singular gesture responding to the strength of the site: a grassy terrace overlooking a meandering river facing north up a spectacular valley, next to an old eucalypt. The essential concept of Bluff Farm House reflects the way in which the owner has always used this place: setting up a table on the grass under the shade of the tree.

The Cockatoo Island / Wareamah Concept Vision was developed in 2021 for the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust [SHFT], to outline a new future for its ongoing restoration and regeneration. The vast nature of the island and the many precincts means that it is likely to be delivered in several stages over the coming decade. It is a complex place with many supporters and stakeholders which has a special place in the minds of many in Sydney and around Australia.

Paddington Reservoir

Paddington Reservoir Gardens NSW

Paddington Reservoir Gardens
When TZG and JMD were commissioned to convert the Paddington Reservoir into an urban park, the general expectation was that the site would be capped off and a brand new arrangement built on top. However, the architects were captivated by the possibilities of revealing the 19th century structures as a ruin through which members of the public could wander, taking in the dramatic spaces and play of light across the remnants of historic walls and vaults.

Little Paddo
Design: Anton Kouzmin Architecture
Little Paddo Paddington NSW
Pphotograph : Katherine Lu
Little Paddo, Paddington, New South Wales
The brief for Little Paddo was simple; to transform a stuffy old attic conversion into a well ventilated, light filled, flexible studio that accommodated a work-from-home study, a place to play and compose music, ample storage, a fold-out bed and a laundry.

Merindah Park House, Bellawongarah NSW
A new owner built farmhouse, Merindah Park House in Bellawongarah, on the tablelands above Kangaroo Valley, takes cues from traditional rural building materials and forms. The splayed plan opens to the landscape and generates a serene central courtyard around which circulation paths are placed.
