Doncaster Residence

Winner Residential Design – New Houses: $500K-$1M

Designer: Sync Design Builder: Concept Build
Photographer: Jack Lovel Photography Location: Doncaster, VIC

Beautifully resolved mass, considered programme and overall composition. The complexities and risk associated with a steep corner block were a significant challenge, in which the designer has shown exceptional ability. The arrangement of the cubist forms allows the building to sit comfortably upon the hill, with the rotated and abstracted boxes addressing the corner block equally. The interiors also speak to an experienced designer, with a sophistication that synchronises with the exterior as one object. The refined aesthetic with the smooth render and resolved fenestrations communicate a strong design response and an equally impressive technical capacity.
