“The city’s dream home has changed in a year. It’s now all about statements in bold, head turning architecture.” Adam Devine, Real Estate Editor—The Daily Telegraph

This year’s most popular properties are not based solely on location, harbour views or size, but are based on “risky” designs. Across Sydney suburbs, architects and builders alike are seeking opportunity in delivering cutting-edge designs to homeowners. 

This no doubt also comes as a result of the pandemic, where people are spending more time indoors and remote working arrangements have become the norm. Take for instance one of our most iconic projects in Concord. Our team of building designers and town planners were inspired to think outside the box in creating a showpiece that not only maximised the space, but took into account shifts in clever design, sustainability and technology, while also complementing the warmth, safety and security that make a house a home.

About our Concord project

In a record-breaking sale as the first property to break the $6 million mark in Concord in Sydney’s inner west, 11 Tripod Street is one of many homes proving the shift in consumer demand is gearing towards bold statement homes as the designs of choice.

ES Design was the luxury home designer of choice for builder JPH Built on their most recent development. The perfect masterpiece as featured in The Daily Telegraph recognises that design is about taking risks—thinking the unthinkable.

Stylish and chic enough to hit the papers, the double brick residence features:

  • A fluid flow from the interior to the exterior
  • Five spacious bedrooms with built-in wardrobes
  • High ceilings and extensive use of glass
  • An internal garden atrium
  • A state-of-the-art kitchen with the finest in finishes
  • A resort-style backyard with a swimming pool and barbecue terrace
  • A triple car garage
