This existing multi leveled house required reconfiguration to better embrace its northerly orientation and aspect.

Overlooking Quakers Hat Bay in Mosman, the brief called for a series of outdoor rooms – linking both inside and out as well as providing a more seamless connection between levels.

A central stair was inserted into the old shell, providing more direct access between public and private spaces, and allowing light to filter through the the house. A separate cinema room and bar was added, linking to an open dining and kitchen area. The existing pool and gardens were landscaped and provided with sun bathing decks and play areas.
