This award winning harbour front house in Napoleon Street, Battery Point, is a joint residential project showcasing JMK’s structural concrete works. The building, which fuses the pre-existing 1890’s weatherboard cottage with the new modern extension, utilises both precast and insitu concrete panels in order to create dramatic living spaces. The use of concrete as a primary material is both functional, as it acts as a super insulator driving the house’s low energy consumption rating and a central design feature, with the exposed panel detailing throughout creating a dramatic industrial statement.
The residence, designed by Maria Gigney Architecture, has profiled in a number of design publications and featured on Grand Designs Australia.
