The Schoolhouse, merges old and new, combining contemporary details within conservation architecture. This family home blends dynamic and vibrant elements with understated and timeless spaces, designed to feel as though it has been permanently embedded in the historic building.

Just when I think my love for lofts has waned BAM! I’m smitten all over again. The space, the ceiling heights, light flooding in and the touch of industrial.

“Pacific House is an alteration and addition to an existing 1990’s concrete framed cliffside dwelling. It is exposed to the Easterly facing ocean and closely adjacent similar cliffside dwelling structures. We have replanned the dwelling, adding external amenity including landscape works and a swimming pool. We have also modified portions of the exterior building envelope including doors and windows, cladding, entries, external decks, facades and pergolas.”
