JD’s Awning, Sydney
JD’s Awning is a project within a project. Set amongst the leafy slopes of Gymea Bay, an original fibro shack has been slowly but painstakingly upgraded, stage by stage, by its owner Jarrod Denny – a talented builder, with an acute attention for detail and quality.
The awning’s organic form sits in direct contrast to the homes lightweight impermanence and orthogonal rigor.
A raw concrete finish was selected to allow the damp temperate bush setting to paint the surface over time with mildew and mottling. Beneath the protective mass sits an arrangement of delicate steel and glass housing a pop-out entry area with pivoting front door.
Two glazed openings in the awning allow sunlight into the front room beyond, casting abstract shadows that change with the time of day and seasons.
With time, the awning will appear to have proceeded the home.
What was the brief?
To create a new entry with covered area as both a practical and experiential feature. The client wanted a challenge to build something interesting and different.
What were the key challenges?
Sitting beneath trees, the structure had to be able to withstand occasional falling branches. The structure need to be low maintenance as the house already requires a lot in the bush setting. Access was an issue with use of a inclanator to access from the garage
