the site is situated in the eastern suburbs with a prime view of the harbour bridge and city CBD and the proposal is for a second level addition to a 4 bedroom californian bungalow. the scheme sought to capture the vista through a modulation of the internal spatial configuration, combining exposure of the external and maintaining an intimacy internally. a simple fold and shift in the roof structure provides variation in the upper volume, opening the northern end whilst framing the view from the southern lounge area. the upper volume looks out across a planted rooftop which contains a number of native grasses and shrubs, setting the view across the harbour and city.
