The house is located directly opposite Balmoral beach in Sydney, Australia. Central to the design is how the building contributes to this beautiful location and surroundings. The initial design was inspired by a work by Isamu Noguchi, a sculpture that is a play on solid and void. Our clients are passionate supporters of the arts and they embraced conceiving of their home as a sculpture on the site.
The form of the concrete building creates a framed window from the street, through a sculpture court, to the water views beyond. Art and views are shared with the street.
This sculptural form was painstakingly reworked and shifted to solve the complexities of the site and the client’s functional brief. Boxes shift orientation to respond to views, the sun and privacy requirements.
There is a consistent minimalistic palette of natural textures, against which the colour and richness of art dominates to create a dynamic and warm interior.
