Harbour side of house

Harbour side of house

This house is in Sydney's Clontarf on a large 1600sq.m site that embraces the harbour around Fisher Bay. The house sits proud among its neighbours looking over The Spit Bridge and beyond. The design capitalises on its extensive views has strong architecture geometry and is exceedingly well balanced in its scale. Blades help focus different areas of the house to different views with larger void spaces inside.
