After living in Manhattan for decades, the owners sought to trade the confines of city living for a site with sweeping views of the Hudson River. They wanted a compact home that was as extraordinary as the vista it offered, equipped with just enough space for two.

The site is entered via a winding gravel drive through meadow grasses and lilacs up to a framed view of the Hudson River through the carport. The lightness and reflectivity of the façade enhance the reading of a hovering volume in the sky, resting on just a few thin steel columns. Located on one of Croton-on-Hudson’s highest overlooks, the house was conceived around maximizing panoramic views of the town and river below via floor-to-ceiling windows across the façade. Meanwhile clerestory windows along the front maintain privacy from the drive, while providing natural daylight.

The slatted ipe volume contains a stair and elevator to the main level. The living space is open and airy – fitting for a house floating in the trees. A long kitchen island and low cabinetry near the built-in banquette provide ample storage while maintaining sight lines to the landscape. The interior palette of white oak and light grey provides a muted backdrop to highlight select pieces from the owner’s pottery collection. The master suite has built-in wardrobes flanking either side in lieu of a master closet to maximize space. The built-in bed conceals a TV on a lift mechanism, so it can be hidden when not in use, preserving the view through the full height windows. With the bath open to the bedroom, the couple can get glimpses of the water from the vanity.

The home office, serving as a threshold to the guest bedroom, offers additional views when seated at the built-in desk. The guest room features a murphy bed, so it can be used as additional living space when unoccupied. A covered central deck, enclosed on three sides, can transform into a seasonal outdoor room with a firepit and drop-down insect screens. Below, a long lap pool and deck provide shade while exercising or lounging in the water. Metals panels on the underside bounce light and reflections from the pool water below.

The exterior materials were chosen for durability and longevity – metal paneling, untreated ipe, and pvc – guaranteeing that minimal maintenance is required. The Hudson River House’s simple form, extensive glazing, and subdue material palette reinforce the project’s initial goal – prioritizing the stunning natural landscape.

Recipient of the NZIA New Zealand small project architecture award, the simple skewed form of this house has an appropriate scale and presence within the wider landscape. On arrival visitors are led up a path alongside tall cedar screens before stepping up onto a deck and informally entering.  Capturing this sense of informality was a key design driver in creating a small family home that felt like a retreat. The kitchen is the hub of the home with the deck slicing through the plan. The living space steps down into a light filled volume reaching out to the river. A mezzanine pulls over above with an exposed bookcase balustrade providing a sense of homeliness. The rear of the house, delineated by the seamless pivot door, provides a place to retreat.

Capturing a sense of informality was a key design driver in creating a small family home that felt like a retreat. The Bach typology of blurring of spaces and breaking down of thresholds corresponds with the expressed natural materials and tectonic detailing.

Limerick House by Solomon Troup Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Eganstown, Victoria, Australia
Area: 195 m2
Year: 2017



Architects: Solomon Troup Architects
Lead Architects: Lachlan Troup, Beth Solomon
Builder: Arc Design & Build
Photography: © Tatjana Plitt



Limerick House is a modest addition to an existing dwelling on a rural Victorian property. The new addition orientates the home towards the expansive country hillside views, providing a connection to its surrounds not evident in the existing dwelling.

The form of the addition was inspired by the dilapidated timber shearing sheds that inhabit the local area.

The exterior of the addition is clad entirely in spotted gum decking boards, stained black to enhance the resemblance the materiality of the dilapidated shearing sheds. The aging of the timber as it silvers off will further enhance this resemblance.

Silvertop ash lining boards were used extensively internally to contrast the dark, timber clad exterior, and to encourage the traditional notion of a warm winter weekend cabin.

The gabled form of the addition responds to the existing pitched roofs of the existing house. The new addition has the same dimensions and shape as the existing three railway cottages used to build the existing house, but is sloped on the eastern boundary to create a doorway, used to link the house to another existing house on the property.

Portsea Beach Shack by Pleysier Perkins Architects

Location: Portsea, Mornington Peninsula, Australia

Year: 2017



Architects: Pleysier Perkins Architects

Builder: Kleev Homes

Photography: © Michael Kai



A small addition and intricate interior intervention to a classic 1960s beach shack situated only a stone’s throw away from Portsea’s iconic Shelly Beach.

This charming four-bedroom cottage had a lot of existing Mid-century Modernist features to work with including lattice steel trusses, painted brick and white timber windows. The client’s brief was to build on this and improve the use and internal flow of the kitchen/living spaces, create a better connection to the garden as well as make design updates to the joinery, lighting and bathrooms.

To the front a modest reverse lean-to addition sits respectfully back from the original beach shack and surrounding houses. Inside is a relaxed and light multipurpose hangout – that opens up front and backyard alike – blurring the lines between the inside and the outdoors. A painted brick spine and concrete bench continues to the outside either end of this room, connecting the two outdoor spaces and creating the backdrop to a front garden sitting ledge and a playful backyard BBQ and pizza oven.

Holroyd Court by Foomann Architects

Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Area: 400 m2
Year: 2017



Architects: Foomann Architects
Builder: Quadro Constructions
Landscape: Mud-Office
Photography: © Willem-Dirk du Toit
Photography Styliste: Esme Parker



An existing interwar duplex on a sloping site was the foundation of this challenging conversion project.

The two units had complex floor plans over three levels, including a detached basement. The interior was adapted primarily through the demolition of dividing walls and floors. The basement garage was connected through a new staircase and repurposed as the kids’ play area.

The solidity of the original building was respected through curved details and materials designed to emphasise mass. A new central void above the entry creates drama and provides a visual clarity to the arrangement of spaces.

The building’s steep elevation provided excellent views but created a disconnection with the outdoors. A key gesture was burying the old garage doors behind a grassy hill to connect the main living space to the garden and swimming pool.

The result is a home that’s open and connected; an entertainer where young kids and pets can run wild.

Parkside Beach House by Cera Stribley Architects

Location: Sorrento, Victoria, Australia
Area: 300 m2
Year: 2017



Architects: Cera Stribley Architects
Photography: © Emily Bartlett



Taking inspiration from the iconic Mornington bathing boxes, Parkside Beach House features concrete, timber and brick throughout the building. The property is ideal for multi-family use and balances open and spacious communal areas with the privacy of secluded retreats.

This holiday home is designed to accommodate multiple families and guests simultaneously, creating the need for both insulated, private spheres as well as functional and welcoming communal areas. With apartment-like spaces, private entry points and a kitchenette independent of the main living/kitchen area, Parkside fits this brief perfectly.

WIth the dramatic juxtaposition of the timber batten cladding and block work of the carport area, the exterior of the property is a playful take on the classic Mornington bathing box form. The open nature of the structure is enhanced by the expansive windows framing the main living space. Parkside is a contemporary take on the classic beach house, offering the luxuries of crisp detailing and curated interiors, as well as meeting the practical needs of functional and versatile spaces.
