July: At Home With The Architect - Tim Greer & Linley Hindmarsh

1407b1

In July 'At Home With the Architect' offers another opportunity to experience how architects design their own home. Featured this month is the residence of architects Linley Hindmarsh and Tim Greer.

Together Linley and Tim run a small practice, Greer Hindmarsh Architects, that specialises in the design of new houses, alterations and additions to existing houses and small commercial projects.

Independently of their shared practice, Linley Hindmarsh offers architecture and planning services to a variety of clients, including other design practices, while  Tim Greer is a Director of the multi-award winning Sydney firm Tonkin Zulaikha Greer.

Linley and Tim's design for their own home correlates with a recent description by Linley of her approach to architecture - '...I don't see the notion of Architecture as necessarily being confined to brand new individual works of iconic strength and beauty. Rather, I'm interested in the subversion of any kind of 'worn' building into something freshly contemporary and unusual, preferably with some client idiosyncrasy added to the mix.'
