Riverside are currently working on two more of our projects in Newtown and Dulwich Hill, with completion expected before the end of the year.
Concrete polishing is a delicate art that aims to find the fine line between not enough and too much. It results in a natural finish, which will add to the character of the interior.
Newtown House 2 aims to balance the textures of concrete and recycled brick with clean and simple lines to produce a warm, inviting and contemporary space.
A big thank you to Brodie, at the Lunchbox Architect for today's feature on Enmore House.

If you haven't already stumbled across the Lunchbox Architect, I would definitely recommend subscribing. Great articles, photos and architectural drawings. It is a great resource for any designer, or owner looking for some inspiration.
Always nice to revisit a completed project.
Hoping to be back in a few weeks to photograph!
After an epic 17 months, two Development Applications and a S82a Review, the Homebush Studio / Granny Flat has been approved (largely unchanged) by Strathfield Council.
The delays in the project were due to a number of technical factors based around a stormwater absorption trench in close proximity to a tree protection zone (although compliant with Australian Standards). Once redesigned, council re-zoned the site as flood affected and the stormwater system had to be once again re-designed, with an accompanying flood impact statement.
Although a long and arduous process, the proposed building remains unchanged from the original application.
After a long wait, the finishing touches that the owner's have added to their new home have now been complete.
Very exciting to re-visit Newtown House with our photographer to capture it in it's full glory!

What a difference a week makes!
First floor at Enmore House framed and ready for the roof.
Great to see the beginnings of the height, space and light that the void will bring to this south facing addition.
What a great way to end the week, with news that Earlwood House 02 has been approved in exactly 4 weeks!
It will be full steam ahead on the construction certificate in order to get the project underway before the christmas break.
A quick drop in at Enmore House this afternoon to see Gavin still hard at work.
Slab down (and ready for polishing) and frame about half way up! Looking forward to seeing the first floor frame and void take shape in the coming weeks.
Keeping it simple at Newtown House 02, with a limited palate of materials which will allow the details and forms to shine.
Development Application submitted to Canterbury Bankstown Council for alterations and additions to an existing dwelling in Earlwood.
The client was looking for a alteration to the existing dwelling to allow them to utilise an existing attic store as a bedroom to free up space for a dedicated study. The proposal involved the retention and incorporation of the existing chimney into the addition as a feature, as well as a strategically placed openings to take advantage of the cooling southerly.
Demolition has commenced at Enmore House, with the rear of the old cottage completely removed. Gavin was busy at work excavating for the concrete encasement of the sewer in preparation for our new addition.
