From Corben Architects:
This project involved replacing a single storey house with a two storey one on a sensitive site with extensive water views. A simple rectilinear form was adopted, which was then carefully articulated with timber and sandstone cladding to present a modern 3-dimensional structure that fits well into its immediate context. Energy efficiency design principles were used throughout.
An operable skylight over the central core allows natural light and ventilation. Concrete floors and roof were used to maximise thermal mass and thermal comfort was enhanced with Low E glazing. Overhangs and screens were used for solar protection.
Simplicity of style, space and symmetry are spiced with hints of Morocco and echoes of the tropics in this truly magnificent contemporary residence. It's understated, uncompromised, it's an urbane home offering a sophisticated lifestyle for style conscious empty nesters or discerning professional couples.
Designed to maximise the uninterrupted Middle Harbour views and ideal northerly aspect, with a discreet street presence that hides the treasures within. Natural materials ... timbers, sandstone, marble and limestone unite with earthy simplicity to enhance impeccable interiors by Maryanne Collins where the focus is on a luxurious, practical, low-maintenance lifestyle.
Four bedrooms all with ensuites, including a magnificent master suite with private deck, study area, full bath room and dressing room. Separate study area on the main level, double lock-up garage with direct access to the entry court. Lifestyle technologies control the air conditioning, security and lighting.
