This significant new residential project occupies a similar envelope to that of a previously approved apartment development on the site. The project is modelled within this envelope to improve it’s presentation to both the street and the harbour and to improve solar and view access to the adjacent properties.
The major living areas of the house are oriented towards sweeping views of Double Bay, the Harbour Bridge and Opera House through a double height balcony space that also provides protection and screening from the westerly sun. This space is reflected internally by a double height library space which provides drama to the interior and allows northerly light deep into the building.
The sides of the building are folded to provide glimpses of the harbour whilst providing privacy from the neighbouring houses.
