These 2 residences for Barry & Francis Brogden were owner-built, and blend limestone and weatherboards, with floating curved roofs. The result on the windswept brow of the hill looking down the Swan River to Fremantle is a proud and striking form alluding to the nautical backdrop.
We are very pleased with the excellent relationship we had with Ecotecture for our project to sub-divide a large block and build two dwellings in Bicton WA as owner-builders. Matt spent considerable time understanding our needs and working with us developing the design of each house and helping us through council planning and building approval stages. We were very pleased to benefit from Ecotecture's experience and knowledge of environmental design and construction technologies. As a result, we have houses that are a delight to live in, take advantage of the environment, and are cost-effective to keep and maintain. Matt's input did not stop at the delivery of the design drawings but continued throughout the build period with useful help and suggestions as we progressed through the project.
