Lane Cove River

The brief was to design a contemporary house looking over the Lane cove river on a tricky site with a westerly orientation. The challenge was in capturing the stunning views whilst dealing with the harsh westerly sun. This was dealt with through the detailing of an operable facade consisting of aluminium sun shading devices. The desirable northern sun was captured by orienting the house, not only westerly towards the river, but northerly to the central courtyard off the living spaces.
