Mission Bay Family Home

Design and Build a family home with plenty of room for children to play while having easy access to the outdoors.

The family really wanted to attract as much natural light into the home as possible, especially the kitchen area which was tucked into the corner of the room. Beyond that, they would often have guests come and stay and further requested a solution around creating additional space to accommodate their lifestyle. Throughout the construction process, the shadow clad (plywood cladding) started to delaminate on some of the sheets, which became an anaesthetic and waterproofing disaster.

A unique feature of the kitchen became the splash-back window that floods the kitchen with natural light and also offers the onlooker an interesting/arty view of the architectural staircase in the hall. We also installed a 6m opening architectural surface mounted slider onto the level threshold deck to create a further indoor-outdoor-flow. This was made possible through team collaboration and good communication between the architect, engineer and window joiner. The clever use of a children’s wing utilised as both a central media room/lounge also doubled as a 5th bedroom for when guests come to stay. To solve the cladding delamination, the supplier was called out right away and we negotiated the costs to be covered for the replacement sheets.
