• read more Gilliver Ave House, Vaucluse - Architecture, Design - Statutory Planning >
    Located on a steep site in Vaucluse with vast Sydney Harbour views, this international and intergenerational family wanted to provide all guests to their house with a memorable experience of Sydney. The entry sequence through the house takes visitors on a procession through unique underground and then double and triple-height spaces as the more public living spaces of the house unfold and eventually so do the sublime views.
     
    There is a careful negotiation between public and private spaces throughout the levels of the house including formal and informal entertainment, living and workspaces. These ensure that the family can have the privacy they desire and that each individual guest feels comfortable. 
     
    The external form of the building reflects the flow of waves and wind, which speaks to the dramatic topography of the site and its location by the sea.
