Whether visiting alone, with a large group of guests or as a family, the owners were looking for a relaxed, welcoming environment, conceptually similar to a cottage yet more refined, particularly in the relationships among spaces and between people. The goal was to have a present, living and enthusiastic architecture that engages the senses.
The design process, grounded in the setting, symbiosis with the site and a reduced environmental footprint, led to a reflection process on the functional elements and their optimization.

Opening up a Federation Queen Anne heritage listed residence is the dream of many home owners on Sydney’s North Shore.
The northern suburbs on the Sydney harbourside, from North Sydney to Mosman were rapidly developed in the first two decades of the 1900s, thanks to the new ferry services and expansion of public transport links.

OOZN’s Bukit Pantai concept imagines three tiered lightweight residential pavilions floating over a verdant Kuala Lumpur hillside. The pavilions are clad in a flowing aluminium fabric skin that responds to changing light conditions. Perforations screen the interiors from the harsh tropical sun whilst the rippling geometry creates the impression of movement.

Looking like a missing tooth, this project helped to complete a gap in the urban fabric of this intimate residential row house street in Chicago. The row-houses were built in the 1890’s, showing wear and demolition over the years. Infilling this small lot provided challenges for the new residence; to not disturb adjacent 100 year old structures, party wall encroachments and to respect the existing scale of the street. The shoring of the adjacent structures and the house’s new foundations required complex design and construction, including a cantilevered concrete foundation wall to avoid interfering with the adjacent party wall footing.
