The owner-builder clients engaged architect Russell Scott to assist in the design of their dream home in Ryde, New South Wales. Careful consideration was given to the design to ease concerns in regards to flooding, particularly as the block is on the low side, with homes positioned lower again toward the ends of the street. The home sits high on the block and has been designed to make the best use of the available building envelope while keeping the backyard as a useable space for the clients’ young family.

Clay roof tiles were selected for their colour and longevity. The roof tilers, a father and son team, are not only accomplished tradesmen but also experts with the La Escandella product. The end result shows that a simple, traditional roof design can look outstanding when combined with a high-quality product and craftsmanship.
