Warren & Mahoney, 1962 & 1979
Angular, articulated and artful, 65 Cambridge Terrace was designed in 1962 as both an office for Warren & Mahoney and a residence for Sir Miles Warren. Expanding on the materials and techniques employed in his earlier designs, the building shows us what it is made of – concrete beams and blocks, meranti timber – and revels in its geometric design. The timber-framed 45 degree half-gables jutt out of the flat roof and sit atop the two double-height boxes that make up the main building, which, in addition to the adjacent flat that houses a long, narrow gallery, opens out into a sumptuous garden and reflection pool, providing respite in the middle of the city.
Barry Dacombe was part of the small architecture team from 1960's until 2005. Listen to Barry's memories of the building.
