Point Piper Residence
Point Piper NSW
The building terraces down a steeply inclined site from the street entry level to an extensive waterfront with over 90m of new sandstone seawall. The civic proportions of the sandstone extend to the lowest level of the building extending directly from the natural rock outcrops of the site. Above the sandstone base, the building is articulated into two masonry wings, one oriented directly on axis to the Harbour Bridge, the other to the southern waterfront of Blackburn Cove.
Copper vaulted roofs, extensive steel windows, doors and reveals, and steel pergolas define the architectural character. The interiors are arranged around an elevator and spectacular stair with all spaces enhanced by connections to the harbour views.
