CLIFTON GARDENS HOUSE - MOSMAN
This house was a challenge due to
the client requirement of keeping the heritage character of
the building but at the same time to achieve a contemporary
interior with plenty of natural light, open spaces and privacy
for the different functions of the house. Furthermore, there
was a limited budget for the renovation of the building.
To achieve this, the external façade
was maintained intact except for the rear, where it was elected
to produce a contrast with a contemporary design to reflect
the modern interior as well as to emphasize the integration
of the house with the rear garden.
As the family likes to entertain
throughout the year, the family room was carefully designed
to achieve a fluid relation among the kitchen, dining, living
and also the garden. All these spaces needed to maintain their
own identity, but at the same time to be integrated with the
beautiful views towards the Sydney middle harbour.
