Naremburn House in Sydney

Designed by Bijl Architecture, the Naremburn House in Sydney, Australia interrogates traditional typologies, providing a site-specific response with an emphasis on thoughtful spatial planning and a robust materiality in response to the client’s brief to ‘live long’.

Balancing a range of challenging planning, heritage and site restrictions, the Naremburn House manipulates the site topography through shifting volumes and geometries, playing with light, materials and form to create a house underpinned by an ‘intentional irregularity’.

A formal re-interpretation of traditional roof forms, such as the Dutch gable and catslide roof, allows a compact streetscape frontage that matches the scale of surrounding properties, while volumetric opportunities offered by the roof form are exploited to provide a useful and capacious floor plan.

“For the owners, the project entails a multitude of finely constructed spaces which form an attractive home that provide delight, interest and robustness for many years to come.

The integration of materials through quality workmanship, excellent site management, and consideration of maintenance ensures the longevity and integrity of the original vision of the project,” says Melonie Bayl-Smith, Director of Bijl Architecture.

Inside, a double height wall beside the central stair void is the site of a unique, integrated Corian sculptural wall installation dubbed the “De-Form Wall”. Bijl Architecture co-designed the wall with AR-MA in an intensive exploration of parametric drawing and scripting, investigating pattern and form by deploying an innovative approach to digital fabrication processes and CNC machining.

Key to the design and realisation of the Naremburn House was the clients’ desire to reside in the dwelling for the long-term. The material selections – externally, zinc, timber, masonry, concrete; and internally, polished concrete, solid surfaces, framed walls and timber framed fenestration – consistently convey the clients’ brief, selected for durability and capacity to weather and wear.
