Brick House – Andrew Burges Architects
Our brief for this new two storey dwelling was for a family home of 5 bedrooms, a study and associated living rooms set within a tightly scaled streetscape of detached houses and apartment buildings in North Bondi, Sydney.
Conceptual Framework – From ‘macro geography’ to ‘micro geography’
The project’s conceptual framework continued our exploration of architecture as a form of geography making. It addressed the curious geography of Bondi, which at the macro scale is connected to some of the archetypal experiences of Sydney’s geography – the Pacific Ocean, Coastal headlands, beach, big sky and rugged coastal flora – but at the micro scale of the individual site is characterised by long, narrow sites of poor building stock and poor amenity in terms of natural light and privacy.
