Construction commences on contemporary Berowra home

Construction commences on contemporary Berowra home

We are very please to see that construction has commenced on our design for a contemporary new home on the escarpment overlooking the beautiful Berowra Waters.

In 2014 our clients came to us with a green site sold as part of a new subdivision in Berowra within the Hornsby Council area. The site embraces the top of the Turner Road ridge and commands amazing panoramic views of Berowra Creek. The site however is not without challenge being a BAL-FZ and BAl-40 bushfire prone lot and those views are all westerly which creates some interesting architectural challenges.

The architectural form of the design is born from its setting resulting in a longitudinal building embracing the ridgeline but allowing the occupants to undertake a journey through a series of separable zones of the home to allow efficient thermal control but also suit the owners lifestyle. The dwelling provides commanding views from every room of the house yet each room has been individually considered so that privacy is maintained and the thermal comfort maintained. The architecture is defined by a contemporary industrial style embracing simplicity of materials expressed through the use of galvanised steel, raw and polished concrete as well as lots of glass.

McCullum Ashby Architects are proud to feature this home on their website and look forward to posting updated photos as the build progresses.
