This extension to this home in Mosman has great charisma, opening beautifully onto the back garden. Designed by Anderson Architecture, the main brief was to create a fluid connection between the older parts of the house and the new living areas. The structure was designed out of exposed steel and an extensive use of locally grown spotted gum timber has been used throughout in veneer joinery, window frames, decking and shingle cladding. Recycled timbers have also been used for stairs and flooring. The home features lots of natural light and great cross-ventilation as well as a contemporary, clutter free interior.

 

Sustainable features: solar panels (2.1 KW photovoltaic system); concrete floor for thermal mass; solar hydronic heating system; rainwater harvesting (36,000L tank); cross-ventilation and extensive use of recycled timber.
