Murrumbidgee House

This property is situated on the Murrumbidgee River which flows from the snowy mountains south past the picturesque rural town of Jugiong and the appearance of the building was transformed to accommodate the clients wishes. The columns supporting the verandahs were changed to strengthen the primary fa├žade of the building and the verandah extended along the length of the building. The internal ceiling heights were increased by building into the roof space and adding timber boarded coffered ceilings, whilst a traditional corrugated roof was added. An open breezeway was designed with waxed concrete floors and timber margins where fresh breezes are captured in the hot Australian heat.
