Celebrating the natural vistas of this Clifton Gardens’ house in Mosman, the newly built pool reaches out to the Chowder Bay Reserve beyond. A ‘surgical’ installation of a new stairwell rationalized existing poor circulation by combining two disparate and awkward stairwells, and allowed light to fill the existing dark core of the house.
Working with the existing walls, the entry was transformed to welcome the visitor rather than turn them away. The largest front door we have done opens to the generosity of a double height atrium and a timber batten feature wall draws the visitor through to the living spaces and the views to Sydney Harbour and chowder Bay.
