Text description provided by the architects. Located on the North Shore of Sydney where the vegetation still prevails over the human footprint, Northbridge House balances the use of contemporary industrial materials within the surrounding Australian bush context.
Northbridge House is designed for a family of four with a love for outdoor living. Living and dining spaces maximise the available natural light through large glass doors and windows to provide a seamless flow between inside and out.
The building’s restrained and solid street presence opens at the rear and cascades down the sloping site. Refined timber detailing is used to soften the architecture, providing texture, rhythm, balance and a device that filters light throughout the home.
