with McBride Charles Ryan
This private residence had been under construction for five years when I first began at McBride Charles Ryan. The drawn out construction period enabled it to become a site for research and architectural experimentation.
Working closely with my directors, the first task that I completed on this job was the realisation of the ripple ceiling. The ceiling was conceived as capturing the effect of a series of water droplets positioned in areas of energy and activity within the house. The ripples were created out of comb shaped sheets interlocking to form larger panels. I was responsible for checking and coordinating documentation, resolving details, and working very closely with the manufacturer throughout construction and through to installation.
