This house is very much about being on the edge.  Situated on an extremely steep site with bush reserve behind and expansive city and bay views to the front the house is envisaged as being simultaneously cliff/citadel/cave/tree house.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsThe powerful idea of providing both ‘prospect and retreat’ is pursued with numerous hermetic spaces deployed to balance the huge views and dominance of the horizon. These include a double height book lined library, an art studio that engages directly with the bushland at the rear and a ‘grotto’ or cave that overlooks the pool and through living room beyond to the city skyline.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Scott Burrows A central courtyard on the main level platform is discovered after the ascent of the central stair that cuts through the house.  The courtyard is at the heart of the main level platform and gathers the houses’ public rooms in way that echoes hilltop monasteries or citadels. On a pragmatic level the courtyard acts to bring in northern light, make a piece of level ground and enable single room wide planning for excellent passive ventilation.Save this picture!© Scott BurrowsProject gallerySee allShow lessFrank Lloyd Wright’s Wasmuth Portfolio on Display at SC Johnson’s HeadquartersMiscWorld Trade Center River Wall May Be LeakingArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more
