Project + Design Architect (2015) for MHNDU
Interior Design: Lawless Meyerson
Builder: Horizon Habitats
Photography: Justin Alexander
Located in the eastern suburbs of Sydney with views to Sydney Harbour, this irregular shaped site with its north-facing entry being extremely narrow, a steep slope from the rear to the front and sandstone rock shelves which occur at various levels proposed a challenge to the architect.
The brief was to create a practical family home that captures the panoramic views of the Harbour and provides a warm and relaxed atmosphere with plenty of light and generous amenity.
The project was conceived as a group of two pavilions set around a central courtyard where the spaces can freely flow from inside to outside and permit both pavilions access to eastern and northern light.
To emphasise the sense of seamless spaces the architectural material palette of dark metal, timber, stone and off-form concrete makes its way to the inside of the house with beautifully designed interiors.
The client had a strong sense of style and a very good understanding of materiality, form and space. The design process was a true collaboration between client, architect and interior designer where every detail was discussed intensively and resulted in a beautifully finished home.
