Mosman Bay House

The Mosman Bay House is located in a secluded lane overlooking the tranquil waters of Mosman Bay offering panoramic south facing views over Sydney Harbour.  The design of the house is arranged to provide views from all rooms, whilst capturing the sun from the north, creating a series of courtyards bounded by a house which is built to the contours of the steep site topography.

A robust base podium, clad in handmade bricks accommodates all the living and dining areas. Hovering over these spaces are simple forms containing the more private sleeping areas.  At the centre of the house is a large double height space bounded by a textural sandstone wall.  This double height space creates a centre piece to the house and allows northern light to stream into the living spaces.

 

The living spaces are elegant but casual, opening seamlessly onto the bay side terraces and an infinity edged pool.  The material palette is natural and textural with a mixture of the handmade bricks, sandstone walls and timber interiors to create a modern timeless and relaxed home which responds to the site on the edge of Sydney Harbour.
