For many of us, a home is all about family. For John and Fay

Mosses, this was taken a step further when their architect son,

Adam, designed their new home and his brother, Joseph, built it!

John has a background in the building industry, having worked as

a builder, survey draftsman and project manager (as well as a TAFE

teacher and locksmith, but that’s another story).

He insisted on brickwork but Adam was determined to deliver no

ordinary brickwork and no ordinary home.And there was no

ordinary purpose informing the design: John had a stroke five years

ago and the new house needed a pool to aid his physical therapy

and as few level changes as possible.

Adam completed an undergraduate degree in design and arts

before doing a Masters in architecture.After six years with BVN, he

now operates as a sole practitioner, mostly on residential projects,

with a specialisation in 3D visualisation. He also works as an

independent artist in mixed media and photography.

Concord in Sydney’s inner west has been dubbed the ‘parkland

suburb’.Although it has many large homes, this site is a more

modest 400 square metres.The two-level, four-bedroom house has

a footprint of about 225 square metres.
