Builder: Steele Associates Construction Architect: Tom Ferguson
Tom Ferguson had been ruminating over the design for his own house for years. When it came time to choose a builder he selected Steele Associates as his partner in the project. With the freedom of being his own client, Tom incorporated brave features such as a shower access recess cut into a Victorian timber floor with a joinery unit completing the conversion of living room to bathroom. Three meter high recycled hardwood pivot doors were cut into a brick floor. Each board of the pre-finished joinery ceiling was individually trimmed to align with the skewed side boundaries, and blending of old and new structure was impeccably detailed. The stunning result speaks for itself.
