This modern family home is located in Sydney's north-west region, and is accompanied with district and city views. A sense of grandeur and modernism were the key principles driving the design for this project. Amalgamation and articulation were mandatory features of the design, which require a certain level of balance to create a cohesive design to suit the scale of this home.

Geometry and articulation became influencing factors in the design, in which a unified balance was required between different forms both rectilinear and curvilinear. Void spaces, a central curvilinear hallway and intersecting geometries dictate the facade and planning aspects of the design. Cantilevered and interconnecting geometries portrayed at the rear depict the cohesion of the building within its surrounding environment. The steep site naturally slopes to the rear allowing the intersecting forms to protrude and extrude from the building, which blurs the distinction between the thresholds of internal to external spaces.

The large scale cantilevered concrete forms proved to be a challenging task. However through close collaboration between the designers and structural engineer, the team at Sydesign was able to liaise with those involved to ensure a cohesive design that would project a sense of modernism to satisfy the client]s needs and desires, whilst configuring a building form that would remain structurally sound.

This project is one of the many examples of how Sydesigns flexibility and skills in design, in conjunction with close client/consultant collaboration, can result in another luxury custom house design.
