A new-build house replacing two very narrow 2-storey weather-board cottages on the same lot but in a very derelict state. After much discussion with Heritage it was felt that it would not be possible to restore them to anything other than museum status as they could not be brought up to current BCA standards. It was also felt that they were not of that much interest and very little original fabric existed. A fairly unique opportunity presented itself to insert a contemporary building into a heritage conservation area – allowing for a future reading of this particular period of Sydney’s development.

Having seen some of our earlier work the owners of this extraordinary oceanfront site invited us to submit ideas about what a new house there could look like. They had lived in a simple cottage on the site for several years before and therefore had an intimate familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of living in this spectacular but exposed spot.
The design process, complex due to several defining key issues inherent to the site, ended up taking us through some radically different sketch options before settling on the one that was finally pursued.

Tony Owen Partners have just completed the Focus Apartments in Parramatta, Sydney. The 15 storey tower by Merhis is Sydney’s largest fully steel framed apartment building and contains 120 units in 2 towers. The steel structure also uses lightweight Hebel floors and walls and is the first of a number of projects being developed by this group. This prototype building explores different techniques to achieve a high quality design at a lower price point. The use of steel resulted in a lower cost and faster construction.
