The original home was a 1970’s home on sloping site with magnificent harbour views in a serene landscaped setting. The issues with the current home were the small dark rooms and unusable balconies, that did not take advantage of the outlook and environment. In addition, there was limited scope to enlarge the existing home due to the council’s constraints on floor area.

Our challenge to achieve the clients vision was to maximise the views and light into living rooms and bedrooms. They wanted to gain a better connection from inside to outside and to feel part of the landscaped surroundings.

To bring the outside in and maximise the fantastic water views over Middle Harbour ,we deleted the existing small balconies and incorporated this space into the living rooms . By incorporating sliding glass doors on the exterior of the building which effectively slide past the external wall face and “hang off” the building the line between the inside and outside is blurred. The home now connects with both the natural setting whilst maximising the view.

“We are so happy we used Playoust Churcher Architects for a major renovation of our lower north shore home. This complex architectural job combined advanced engineering, design and innovation and a creative approach to modern living. Playoust Churcher supported us from conception to completion – and well beyond. They quickly understood our lifestyle and desire for a collaborative approach and delivered us a dream home with which it would be hard to be happier. We’re delighted to recommend Playoust Churcher to anyone building or renovating a prestige home in Sydney “
