This large family home was created following the demolition of a smaller residence. Sitting on a footprint of 35m x 15m the building comprises 1½ storeys below ground level and 3 storeys above. The structure features steel, reinforced concrete and masonry, with a roof that is mostly timber and zinc cladding.

With an emphasis on space, the house’s most striking features include:

Taylor & Boyd’s extensive experience as structural engineers ensured that high-quality solutions and successful working methods were applied to every aspect of the project. A temporary retaining structure was installed at the boundary to facilitate construction within 1m of a neighbouring property, and a cofferdam was established in waterproof reinforced concrete (with each rebar individually tied) to form a retaining structure within which the water features could be constructed.
