About Denise O'Connor
Hi! - my name is Denise OConnor, I'm a Building Designer who specialises in the design of energy efficient, solar passive homes. I grew up on this property and have always been interested in houses, how they are built to overcome site conditions, what factors make us comfortable and generally anything to do with the "Australian" way of living. I firmly believe in this way of living - these homes are a joy to live in and cost less to run and maintain. I'd love to work by the "Whole Concept Approach", to be responsible for all components, placement on site, design layout, interior design, furniture, lighting, colour and landscaping on a project. Realistically, it is a "rare client" that would allow this, so therefore it was very rewarding to have the opportunity to create my own "whole concept" at "The Edge". Speaking personally, I like a house to be a place I can retreat, it has to be in tune with the surrounding landscape and look like it belongs and I like the interior to reflect the mood of the site. I like it to be small enough to be cosy yet large enough to accommodate friends when required. I like loads of natural light to visibly connect with the changing seasons. I like the sun to flood into the house in the winter, to be warm at night, to have a cool place to retreat in Summer and a sheltered spot to enjoy the full moon or watch a good storm!. This balance of priorities and compromise varies within each of us but The Edge Retreat is my special place and provides all these things for me, and I hope it gives you the same feeling.
What makes this House unique
The Edge Retreat provides a "Step off" from normal everyday life. The distinction between inside and out is blurred, natural bushland totally surrounds the house and the central deck is open-ended so you will walk outside when traversing between pavilions. That outside element makes you feel confronted, refreshed and excited all at the same time. It will "re-set" you not to be in an environment that is always controlled. The outdoor Fire pit, the bathhouse and the raw nature of this setting will re-humanize you and you will be re-invigorated by staying at this magic place.
