Located on a prominent building site directly opposite St Andrew College, our Clients requested Architecture Studio to design a new French inspired home. The site ground conditions were susceptible to a high content of liquefaction and the land classified as TC3, hence specific Engineering design was required with the building platform excavated and a new compacted imported fill gravel raft was formed. The buildings structure had to be designed lightweight with timber framing and a medium weight panel plaster finish system. All exterior and interior doors are timber and double glazed featuring intricate panel designs. The interior common hall has a curved steel stair and elliptical ceiling feature. The ground floor features a formal entry foyer, kitchen, dining, living separate lounge, study and triple car garage. The first floor has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. This building is scheduled for completion early 2015.
