During the period of 1951 – 1955, The Fox Estate was created and celebrated in a development of unique style and grandeur.
In 2014 and 2015, the current owners along with AN+A, Pimas Gale, a team of consultants and sub-contractors have restored the historically significant elements of the house and site with a view to preserving the substantial legacy of the property.
This mixed use development is home to 7 commercial tenancies and 62 dwellings. It leads the way for highly desired medium density living in Pendle Hill by proposing an important new corner element in the changing streetscape of the Great Western Highway. Creating a complex of perimeter buildings on a green-field site allows for generous a communal landscaped courtyard. Deep external balconies and private ground floor terraces provide north orientated indoor/ outdoor amenity to residents.
AN+A provided construction documentation and interior design services for this residential development within a heritage precinct in Annandale. An existing warehouse is converted into 7 apartments, and 10 modern terraces with expansive living areas are created. Internally clean, contemporary lines are brought to life with considered details of rich timber accents, while externally; rustic sandstone from the retained historic 1800’s warehouse walls adds inviting warmth.
Located on the first level of a nine storey 1960’s ‘H’ shaped complex, this waterfront apartment had previously been amalgamated from three separate units, resulting in an inefficient layout with dated finishes.
By simplifying the central access and using pared back classic finishes such as oak parquetry flooring and bespoke joinery, we created gallery like spaces to allow the client’s collection of beautiful antiques, furniture and art to take centre stage.
We overlaid the visor-like form of this addition to an elevated 70’s house with operable vertical louvers that provide environmental control and privacy. The renovation carves out of the sandstone undercroft a new living space with light from the stair void landing deep into the floor plan.
This house is a new build in an amphitheatre-like site looking west over Cooper Park, surrounding trees and city skyline.
At the heart of our composition are the overlapping horizontal planes of concrete and zinc that pinwheel around a central timber stairwell, horizontally framing the views of Cooper Park.
Situated within Sydney’s Green Square Urban Renewal area, 24 Amelia St, Waterloo is an 8 storey residential apartment building proposal. We activated the park side streetscape with retail and hospitality uses and explored the sculptural language of folded metal screens referencing the previous incarnation of the site as a scrap metal yard.
Built to withstand a 100 year storm event this house enjoys pure beachfront and contours into the sand dune with headland to headland views.
We used robust and coastal appropriate materials in their natural state such as off form concrete, fibre cement sheeting and hardwood wharf decking enabling the home to weather gracefully. Keeping planting to a simple grassy sand dune style re-established the local native micro-climate whilst stabilizing the dune.
Grounded at the base of a dramatic 25m waterfront cliff face this family home was the result of an adaptive re-use of a derelict 60’s building. We designed the new living level structure to be prefabricated and craned over the cliff into place. The arrival experience is heightened by the new passenger inclinator trip over the cliff’s edge and the cliff-hugging pathway traversing the rock face.
Poised at the top of a steep site above an old riverbed and overgrown garden, this Californian Bungalow restoration had at the heart of its brief the need to relocate the living spaces on the lower ground level to establish a meaningful relationship between house and garden.
