Gilder Perringnon House – In Progress

Bronte, NSW

Our clients for this project are a professional couple with a large and rapidly growing family. Their single storey federation bungalow is bursting at the seams. Their brief calls for us to add another level, providing them with five bedrooms, at a reasonable cost. Our solution is a well insulated, lightweight addition of inexpensive materials that takes advantage of available sunlight for winter warmth and light, and coastal breezes to moderate summer temperatures. Its simple, playful form responds to the surrounding suburban context.
