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.
