Bond – Upper Cairns Terrace, Paddington

Designed by Joe Adsett and built by Graya, Construction on ‘Bond’ will soon be coming to a close. This 3-storey renovation takes full advantage of the city views from Upper Cairns Terrace with a large rooftop terrace amongst the trees.

As is common on sites with city views, this home sits on a very steep sloping site. This meant that our residential engineering team had to engineer a solution to elevate the rear pool and lawn area so that it matched with the floor levels of the house and to ensure it sat above the flood levels. We did this by using suspended concrete slabs on blockwork to achieve a level platform.

Also featured throughout this home a large 2-storey window and several circular roof voids to allow light flow throughout. The impressive new elements of this structure sit beautifully next to the original home creating a luxurious yet charming space.
