A Builder’s Warrandyte Household Residence, Over Eight Years In The Making!

The creation of Hamish White, director of Sanctum Properties, and ecologist Lucinda Gow’s household residence in Warrandyte, Melbourne has been an ongoing undertaking over the previous eight years. 

As funds allowed, they’ve labored with Maxa Design, Fireside Studio, and Hannah E. Holmen to rework the home from its ‘falling aside’ state to be excessive performing and sympathetic to the panorama. These parts had been naturally essential to each Hamish and his associate Lucinda, who work as a passive home builder and panorama designer respectively.

‘We didn’t need areas in the home that had been simply ticks on an actual property guidelines,’ says Hamish. ‘The fabric choices and design wanted to be consistent with our values as an organization and as people. The undertaking wanted to “slot in” and “settle” into the block.’

Silvertop ash cladding achieves this impact, complemented by tundra gray marble and American oak veneer joinery inside. 

The renovated inside areas are clear and up to date to attract the attention out to the maturing panorama designed with Esjay Landscapes + Swimming pools and Platylobium.

This connection to the backyard, notably from the eating space that opens on three sides to the outside, is Hamish’s favorite ingredient of the undertaking.

Sustainable options are built-in all through, from structurally insulated panels (SIPS) within the extension, to all-electric home equipment, a 7kW photo voltaic system, and underneath and slab edge insulation. 

Sticking to their preliminary objectives, Hamish and Lucinda have created a heartwarming residence that prioritises type and performance over measurement.
