Freemans Bay Renovations

A long, flat site allows a meandering journey through a series of social spaces, informally organised around an axis running west to east. Internal and external volumes unfold, activities intersect, hidden gardens and secret stairs are revealed. Upstairs is quieter and more contained: a hovering timber vessel, flexible in floor plan and spacious enough to occupy shared and individual places of rest and work.

“To achieve a stunning design with polished concrete on this scale and to such a high quality finish within the limits of a show garden was truly impressive.”
