Episode 7 – Rock House by Mardini Constructions & CR EIGHT

Wow. Projects like this come along but once a lifetime. On the highest hill in Bronte, Sydney, with views of the ocean to die for, was a 3 level block of flats, cheaply rented out to surfers and lovers since the 1960’s. Locals to the area – the owners, who are also the designers – had a dream and vision to transform this tired old building into a single dwelling masterpiece. But this will be no easy feat, with access a massive problem, the whole demolition will have to be done by hand. And to top it off, the builders plan to excavate into the hill the house is on  – to create a 17 metre tunnel, leading to a 12 metre tunnel for a glass elevator up into the residence. Will they pull if off? The reveal will be an OMG moment to talk about.
