Trial Bay House / James Jones / HBV Architects

© Ray Joyce

Located at Trial Bay overlooking the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, the project required an addition of a new living room, verandah, courtyard and garage, along with complete reorganization of the existing dwelling which was built in 1981 and designed by Ray Heffernan. The new room is projected toward the Channel, in a manner and position that preserves the outlook from the house, and maximises direct sunlight to, and outlook from both. The house was awarded the prestigious 2010 Robin Boyd Award of Australian Institute of Architects.
