Reflection House

Putney, Sydney

The site is located in the north western area of Sydney within the Ryde City Municipality. The challenges of this site were varied with the main issue relating to part of the land being a flood-controlled lot. Our clients were astute developers who were focused on producing a bespoke architecturally designed solution for a new house using Complying Development approval. Our relationship with the developer was seamless having worked with them on a number of previous projects. We were governed by materials and floor area to ensure focus on their anticipated budget spend and worked in collaboration with them to maintain focus on this consistently throughout the process. The design is intentionally modern and contemporary, whereby a conscious effort was taken regarding the selection of finishes, interior and exterior relationship as well as orientation and building performance, to ensure comfort and appeal. Light, ventilation and simplicity of the space also play an important role ensuring the spaces are humanly comfortable and relaxing when used. Equally important was the client’s appreciation of design and architecture and their desire to ensure quality craftsmanship in the end result and ultimately delivering beyond all of our expectations.
