House Acute, a striking family weekender designed by MCK Architecture + Interiors, stands proudly in Peats Ridge, Australia. Built in 2015 for a family of six, this unique wedge-shaped home on a small, challenging parcel of land near the NSW coastline, masterfully confronts the harsh ocean elements and bush-fire prone area.
Featuring two overlapping concrete pavilions, the house merges robust construction with playful geometry, offering both privacy and panoramic views. Its design cleverly integrates the surrounding angophora trees, blurring the lines between the built and natural environments.
Set in the vibrant city of Sydney, Australia, the Quarry-Box project is a contemporary house designed by MCK Architecture + Interiors in 2022.
Its unique location, on a compact former quarry, with a steep rock escarpment defining almost two edges of the buildable area, inspired a vertical outcome that maximizes access to the district and coastal views. The plan-efficient new home includes three levels, with an entry + living zone on the ground floor, bedrooms on the first floor, and an additional level above that with stunning views of the city. The Quarry-Box project provides a young growing family with an efficient and modest home, with moments and memories to be shared.
Designed in 2017 by MCK Architecture + Interiors, Andubh (Gaelic for ‘the black’) is a contemporary yet modest home perched on the harbour-facing hillside within the eclectic heritage of Greenwich in Sydney, Australia.
