O'Connor House


This unique custom-build home was commissioned by an owner-builder client to replace their existing dwelling on the site. The spacious dwelling is single storey, whilst managing to maintain a large, well-orientated garden which spills out from the living areas. The house is 3-bedrooms with a rumpus, which can also become a fourth bedroom, plus a study area in the master bedroom which can double as a sitting/sun room. The form of the building follows a low single pitch roof with over-sized eaves to respond to the houses orientation. The house is typically clad in black stained shadowclad timber, with some elements of brick work. Feature timber battens highlight the entry passage and outdoor areas.
