McAllan House, 2005, Balmoral, NSW.
The client’s brief was to substantially retain the freestanding dual occupancy residence, yet radically alter the street presence, entry sequence and circulation. The new work became a foil to the existing heavy brick architecture of the residence. The new roof is supported on an armature of zinc clad structural blades presenting a new civic vocabulary of materials and creating a strong new architecture. The existing roof form angled steeply down constricting both the harbour views and the internal space.
