Award For Parramatta

MAKAR has received an award for Excellence in Civic Design by the Montrose Society for the new Parramatta House in Montrose.

This house makes the most of a disused and overgrown walled garden, previously part of the grounds of Gayfield House, a listed country villa.

Sheltered, and with long views to Montrose and the coast, the development has brought new life to a site with an otherwise uncertain future. The new house, covered walkway and garage are positioned to form courtyard spaces to define public and private realms.
