ď...every day I find myself saying Iím really

pleased we went ahead ....Iím really pleased weíre here,

Iím really pleased we did what we did....

...people just walking their dog will stop 

 and say,Ďlove your houseí or, Ďyouíve done a great job,í

and they havenít even got inside the front door  

and I think the real quality of this house is

inside the front door...Ē

Pymble house Ben Giles Architect  

"With a simple skillion roof, steel roof sheeting

for cladding, and a prosaic but careful composition,

the building does not seek to overstate its claim."

a young Sydney family a little extra space

"In the art-gallery whiteness of the interiors....

The shapes the sunlight makes on the

walls add to the form-play. Genuine sunshine

now gets into the heart of this little house."

 

Jenny Brown, 'Amazing Homes,' Domain. 

(Surry Hills House)  

 

 

"The approach was to build a well-insulated,

cross-ventilated, lightweight timber-framed

house to limit costs and create a thermally

comfortable home."

 

Natalie Mortimer, Australian Design Review
