Harbour House

2006
Vaucluse, NSW

Designed for a growing young family on a west facing site overlooking Sydney harbour – this house is a direct expression of our clients’ clear vision, expansive views of the harbour, the close proximity of neighbouring houses, and a desire to maximise winter solar gain.

A central staircase, with a north facing pop-up roof over, brings sunlight to the centre of the house. Living areas, centred on the kitchen, access both the terrace overlooking the harbour and rear garden pool.
