Wallace Street House
This three-level contemporary home is located on a peninsula and enjoys extensive water views. The design response capitalises on this aspect and incorporates largely glazed facades on three sides while the fourth side is opaque and contains the service and utility areas. Large, boxed shaped rooms clad in sandstone on the western facade, anchor the home and connect it to the sandstone escarpment. Strong horizontal bands of light coloured masonry walls, large areas of glazing and dark timber cladding give the home a modern edge.
