Bronte House

Country / Gadigal

Over a steep site in Bronte, this family house spanning two pavilions opens up to the views and sun at the north, whilst closing down to close neighbours at each side. The brick form of the house is shaved at the sides to allow sun to penetrate deep into the south facing garden. A garage hovers four-storeys over, creating dramatic under croft garden conditions. Robust and elemental materials of concrete, brick and wood were employed. The interiors of the house have been hollowed out to connect north, view and sun to the pool, garden and recreation space. Service spaces are pushed to the peripheries and the interior is also finished in brick with a rich infill of Australian hardwood joinery.
