bay view residence
[bay view residence]
This national and international award winning design is situated in one of Perth's most reputable suburbs. The brief called for a modern family residence with a strong emphasis on outdoor living, views to the river, environmentally-conscious principles and a contemporary architectural expression. It was envisaged that the building's form and style embody a contemporary and timeless aesthetic, incorporating a distinctive cubic form that hovers above a more lightweight structure to the ground floor, with a free-form sculptural column creating visual interest as well as structural function. Quality and low-maintenance materials were integral to its sustainability, including textured acrylic render, linear profiled board cladding and areas of feature metal which will combine with the high-spec glazing to create a simple but durable palette of materials and a high level of presentation.
My role on this project started in the Contract Administration stage, including interior and exterior selections and finishes. It required me to work closely with the project architect as well as with the client and contractors on site during construction to make sure that the projected design matched the client's needs, was functional, safe and economical and that works were carried out to specific standards.
