These empty nester clients had a range of business interests which meant they required a hybrid home and office. Located on the fringe of the CBD, the site was occupied by an existing 2 storey brick and concrete warehouse which covered 100% of the land. With a large, detailed brief including a workshop, office, 4 car garage, gymnasium, 3 bedrooms, a huge chefs kitchen etc meant the resulting 600sqm building was spread over 5 levels with a tranquil sun drench pool as the crown. Vertical transport was via a glass lift which double as a light well. A natural material palette of stone, steel, timber, concrete, glass and zinc ensured the building nestled seamlessly into the semi-industrial context.
