    Description

    The project was a conceptual study for a client who required a 300 square meter house over 3 levels on a hillside property in Sydney’s north shore area. The internal spaces move dynamically over the existing topography around a large courtyard whilst capturing views towards the bay of Mosman. The garage and kitchen are located on the ground floor with garden access, the entrance, guest room, living and terrace areas are on the first floor together with street access to the home office. A central opening above the courtyard and pool on the ground level allows the cool air to rise by way of convection cross ventilating the air throughout the house. The family rooms are on the second level with a big rooftop terrace with views over the bay. The open plan layout utilizes plenty of glazing with big overhangs to block summer sun and allow winter sun to warm the interiors.
