Fitzroy Bridge house - IDEA 2023

Fitzroy Bridge house

Shortlist – 2022

Matt Gibson Architecture + Design with structural engineering by Clive Steele Partners, and landscaping consultant Robyn Barlow

The intervention of an elevated glass bridge enables invigorative adaptations that provide flexible and responsive family living on a challenging site.
