A harbour front property with iconic Harbour Bridge views. This existing four storey house was stripped back to its concrete structure, remodelled and refurbished. The planning was simplified and a new circulation spine, with circular lift and stair, added and extended to the upper arrival level to the house. Limestone, American Oak and Arabescato marble are used throughout the house. Sliding glass doors open across the facade to terraces and balconies. The rear internal walls of each floor are panelled in Oak (Living Levels) and Belgian linen (Bedroom Levels) as a backdrop to the clients contemporary art collection. An existing free form swimming pool was refurbished on the harbour level terrace.
Burley Katon Halliday Pty Ltd (BKH) claims copyright in the works comprising this project. Phillip Mathieson was the architect for this project whilst employed at BKH, in collaboration with its then (and since departed) principal, David Katon.
