Aldgate House.

The unique nature of the project is consistent from concept to the finest detail, with every part of the home custom designed as part of the greater whole.

“Building with Urban Habitats was an absolute joy. The level of professionalism exceeded expectation and nothing was too hard. It was seamless and we are grateful everyday to live in such a beautiful and well constructed home.”

– D & H, Aldgate House

This home is a terrific example of contemporary architecture responding to the site and surrounds in a truly dramatic manner. The unique nature of the project is consistent from concept to the finest detail, with every part of the home custom designed as part of the greater whole. The set out of the home involving high curved parapet walls, with natural plaster as well as timber battens, both internally and externally, encapsulate internal living spaces that are both impressive and inviting. A strong emphasis on natural products and finishes is constant throughout and the striking colour scheme and interior design are befitting a project with numerous technical challenges such as a very complex site set out, extensive requirement for crane access, deep excavated cellar and rumpus space and cantilevered off-form slab.

“I have worked closely with Urban Habitats to realise the construction of a house deigned by our Practice for the Adelaide Hills. An empathetic relationship was established from the outcome with the common goal to deliver this bespoke building for our mutual clients at the highest level. The management and communication of Urban Habitats and their skill in building achieved the most impressive outcome and I look forward to any opportunity in the future to continue this relationship.”
