Bungendore Family Home


The Bungendore home that merges the clients loves of their town and traditional design with their modern Australian style. These juxtaposing elements came together to become the seed that grew into the home
we now see.

A new block in an old town, surrounded by historic gems. On a slim block, in old Bungendore, you will find a home that utilises its space for maximum benefit. With a small northern outlook and the need to have vehicle access from the front and rear entrances, a garage was done away with in preference for a lightweight carport.

A pavilion style home rose up next to the carport, whereby the central pavilion would become a welcoming bridge between the front public gardens and the private rear yards. From the moment you move beyond the entry room, your eyes are immediately drawn to the generous back deck and yard beyond.

Raked ceilings and clerestory windows were introduced in the central pavilion which allows for your eye to move around the room following the light, the kitchen stops you and is the modern touch the family wanted to introduce into their Bungendore gem.

An ultra matt black finish meets the edges of concrete and timber for an incredible result and a kitchen that juxtaposes the traditional elements. This home is a hidden gem, a mix of the old and the new, a home for a couple to grow into for years to come.
