Herne Bay New Home

About This Project

A family home built on a South east facing urban site overlooking a small

rural enclave and oasis and the eastern end of Cox’s creek all in the midst

of surrounding and existing Herne Bay residences. The owner / builder and his

partner and young son wanted a house to grow together in, with a large and

high barrier wall at the entry to separate public from the private rear yard

and garden. The design intention was to bring as much natural light to the

interior of the home as is possible with a high entry atrium that allowed both

connection of main living spaces to upper floor bedrooms and the lower

service spaces and garage to the west. The volumes created were to

enhance the experience of entering and slowly unearthing the excitement

of the spaces and views beyond.
