Leura mountain home gets approved

Here's another job that also kept us busy last year. Our "island" job in Leura. With some good will from council's experts we arrived at an agreed approval. Our "mountain" style in a plan form that's reminiscent of grand old guest homes. It's been one of the biggest design challenges we've faced and even though it's been a pain in many ways it's also been exciting to work on. view from Great Western Highway north eastern view. folded roof forms and western red cedar lining, stone base north western view. feature entry area western view. deep verandahs to mitigate summer sun southern view. heavily landscaped screen elevations. as disciplined as we could make them plan shows dominance of landscaping in the design

Eden final

After many adjustments and enough reports to sink a ship we finally got this beast into council for DA. A bit more finesse on the facades and shapes. Compliant with all LEP controls and most of the DCP ones. Fingers crossed they don't give us too hard a time during the assessment. corner of eden and burrows streets rear view from butterworth lane view from eden street view from burrows street roof deck as common open area solar panels work as shade for decks view of roof deck aerial view from the rear ground floor typical lower levels NE elevation cross section
