A Bushy Family Home That Brings The Outdoors In

How do you design a house that’s not about a house at all? In fact, one that’s all about what’s around the house? The owners of a run-down weatherboard cottage on a 5-acre plot of semi-rural land in Whitebridge, New South Wales engaged Anthrosite to find out exactly how it could be done.

Bordering a conservation area and secluded beach on one side, and a highway on the other, the site itself posed significant challenges to building a relaxing family home. The new house needed to shelter its inhabitants from the noise of traffic AND frame the beautiful natural aspect beyond. A clean materials palette, clever orientation and ingenious layout devised around an outdoor room ticked all the boxes!

A Japanese-Inspired Heritage Home Transformation

The clients of this interwar bungalow in Hawthorn came to Ha Architecture seeking a complete transformation inspired by Japanese architecture – a minimalist, tranquil space full of natural materials and connected to the outdoors.

Ha Architecture delivered on this brief and more, designing an almost entirely new home behind the original frontage to meet heritage restrictions. 

This entrance offers a discreet experience, with a new internal Japanese courtyard revealed only as one moves through the home.
