Dudley Residence in Australia by Bourne Blue Architecture

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.
