The Dudley Residence, completed by Bourne Blue Architecture, is located above Dudley beach on the east coast of NSW Australia. The client wanted a family home that could comfortably accommodate visiting families. This was to be a long-term home, where the client's kids could grow up and live there for as long as they could.
The house was divided into two parts: private (family sleeping) areas and common (living) areas. The two wings are joined by a stairwell that passes under the pool.
The clients commissioned a Landscape Architect (Richard Stutchbury), also a sculptor, to design the outdoor spaces and provide some focus works of sculpture. Stutchbury used plant species, native to the region, with just the occasional exotic to provide a feature element. His hand-hewn sculptures near the pool and in the garden provide subtle dialogue with the architecture.
