Konkurrence Instruktioner

The opportunity is to sketch and design a residential dwelling on a large parcel of almost 1000sqm of blue chip land which includes a deep water jetty situated 2min. away from the Syd harbour bridge. The land drops very steeply from the public road entrance at the top of the land, down to the water's edge found about 53m away.

See survey plan attached and DWG file.

Detailed floor plans/drawings are not yet necessary:

We are not exactly sure what we are looking for as far as detailed drawings/floor plan is concerned, so we are interested in awarding the initial prize to the best sketch based design idea/concept drawing, which captures the essence and feeling of the property whilst providing some of the wish list items below.

see video footage and pics attached.
Note:
- the large Gum tree on the property which cannot be removed.
- The overshadowing neighbouring building
- existing building which is close to the road and which sits higher up the land


The difficulty is the steep fall of the land and the 8.5m height build restriction which must also follow the land topography. I have tried to show a [login to view URL] but you will need to use the survey data file to best get the topography levels.

Requirements/Wish list include:
1. Garage complex (multi level) from the road entrance (inc. possible service quarters)
2. Connected main house - multiple levels with elevator including min 4bedrooms plus study plus theatre plus library
3. pool connected to main living/entertaining area level
4. Pool House with Guest quarters (possible multi level dropping further towards the water)
5. Boat Shed with studio/working/storage quarters

All levels are to be connected and accessible via elevator or inclinator so as wheelchair access is available from the top at road level down to the water/boat shed/jetty level.

The winning concept sketch/plan will be given the opportunity to propose and quote on supplying further detailed floor plans.

Thanking you all in advance...

    Hello, I wanted to ask if the bedrooms can be on a floor below the living area. Or prefer them above. Thank you

    Please seal the contest, as studying the topography is quite a lot of work itself, and participants who upload their entries first, will have all the topography work they've done stolen. #sealed

    what about the roots of the tree? After a first study of the site&topography, I think that the major problem in the project is the fact that if we touch the roots of the tree it will fall (gum trees have very invasive roots, spreading several meters around). That's a really hard and challenging project, I love steep sites, but this tree makes everything very tricky and there isn't much we an do

      maybe it should be checked if the tree has already caused damage to the sewage system of the house, as there is a sewage manhole right next to it

    So to be clear, the simple sketch I have included is the type of sketches we are looking at trying to award the prize to... Of course your sketches will incorporate the 4 different areas as well as the overall side view/cross section view

    the restriction is approx 50% building footprint to land ratio. Swimming pools do not count as building footprint

    existing building can be demolished if necessary... The reason the prize is 260 is because its only 2D concept sketch to try and get the property conceptually sketched onto the extremely steep and un even land. - We do not want detailed plans, only sketches within the levels of the land
