CURL CURL – BRIGHTON STREET (Director’s Residence)


ARCHITECT:  Mark Bennett

The brief was to demolish part of the existing two bedroom double brick house & build a new five bedroom house including

  • new pool
  • large covered timber deck area
  • integrated sandstone throughout
  • new joinery including kitchen, bathrooms, robes, landscaping etc.

The lower level was constructed using existing floor joists with garage/ laundry slab & lower family room/kitchen slab double brick with raking ceiling on the ground & first floor.

Timber frame with fibre cement cladding to upper level with commercial grade windows throughout.

New timber floors & stairs with sandstone elements throughout the house to create a warm natural environment.

Cedar timber battens complimented the house balanced throughout.

The construction also intergrated a high level of commitment towards environmental efficiency with 20,000 litres of rainwater harvesting & High R rated insulation throughout.
