PROJECT Lavender Bay House I

ARCHITECT Tobias Partners

LOCATION Lavender Bay, NSW

The Lavender Bay House project presented unique challenges, due to its location and the design brief and involved highly detailed off-form concrete, dynamic views, and precise integration between all disciplines. Out-of-the-box thinking was required to solve unique structural problems as most aspects of the architecture “pushed the envelope” in terms of the concrete’s capacity and capabilities – that is, each element’s ability to satisfactorily span the long distances between supports, without deflecting excessively or cracking. This was exacerbated by the concrete having to perform significant origami in places, owing to folds, rebates, and significant recesses notched into the beams or slabs at critical zones of high stress.
