Located on the ridge of Castlecrag, with a northerly orientation to the street, and a strongly sloping site to the south, the challenge of this project was how to maximize the sun and privacy, whilst opening to the 180 degree city and harbour views. The proposed features a north-facing courtyard which allows deep penetration of the winter sun into the interior living spaces, whilst creating a private external living space. The massing and materiality of the proposed respond to and celebrate the existing sandstone outcrops and angophora of this unique and important site.
