Wangan House
December 5, 2023
After many months of work and negotiations we are now eagerly looking forward to seeing this beautiful house come to life following the recent DA approval from NBC. The design is a sympathetic, yet epic, addition to a modest Bruce Rickard weekender, transforming the original house into a sophisticated and modern family home for our very patient Clients on this amazing waterfront site in Clareville, NSW.

Konkurito
May 17, 2023
BMA have been working on the design of a new and exciting project in Tamarama. This house, "Konkurito" which means concrete in Japanese, was originally designed by Gordon and Stone and completed in 2010. It’s a well executed (but austere) off-form concrete home built on a tight, steep site on the hill behind Tamarama Beach. The new owners approached BMA to personalise and make targeted incursions to “complete” the house, delivering a warm, beautiful and efficient family home. Our architectural response focuses on providing a new address, entry and circulation element which clarifies movement through the house, and unlocks new potential in the experience of other spaces within the existing envelope. Recently, Development consent was received from Waverley Council, and the project will now continue Design development and documentation for tender and construction. Construction is likely to commence on site around October 2023.

Harbourview Northbridge House
July 25, 2022
The project has been moving at a slow pace due to COVID-19 and the weather, but it's now at a stage where the house exterior works and interior fit-out are almost complete with finishing touches forthcoming over the next few weeks. The project is unique in that excavation under the house for the basement garage was done only recently whilst works to house was ongoing. Traditionally, excavation works under the house would normally be done first.
