This 3 level home, perched on a headland in Greenwich, was designed to capitalise on expansive views across the Lane Cove River. The entry and living areas occupy the middle floor, a playroom, cellar and service rooms are on the lower floor, while the upper floor comprises the bedroom level. A central volume comprising the kitchen joinery forms the core of the home connecting the living spaces and an outdoor dining area. Externally, strong horizontal bands of rendered masonry walls combine with large vertical stone clad ‘boxes’ that anchor the home. Expanses of glazing and stained timber cladding add lighter contrast. Internal finishes of European oak, Calacatta and Bianca Perla marble and black steel create a natural warmth & relaxed setting.
