The elusive dream of living over running water is realised in this unique bridge like home located in a picturesque heritage village.
Two homes were located on the site. One a heritage listed cottage, the other an inefficient modern structure that didn’t provide adequate accommodation for the multi-generational family.
The solution was a simple linear house spanning across the site over the creek.
Energy efficiency was central to the design, large north facing windows utilise winter sun but are protected in summer by the roof overhang. Double glazed windows and well insulated structure provide a healthy environment requiring little artificial heating and cooling.
Our client works from home, and has remarked often how much joy it is to live and work in the house. Two children and a visiting mum can share this joy.
