I Acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which I live and work. I pay my respects to the elders past, present and future of all First Nations peoples of this land; including the Whadjuk Noongar people and the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, on whose lands my work is most often based.

A design responding to a brief for a new house to be built at the vacant rear of a large site with two street frontages in the inner city suburb of Princes Hill, Victoria on Wurundjeri Country. The subdivision of the site implied a marked decrease in existing planting and permeable ground area. This existing condition was one the clients viewed as an amenity that benefited themselves and the local environment.
As a result, the design sought to reimburse the site with the potential for ecology through open courtyard spaces and an extensive planted roof. This initial scheme was revised into second iteration of the house as the owners determined that their brief should expand to include a second storey, housing study spaces that could be converted to additional bedrooms.
