Muston Street, Mosman

Client: Private Owner
Architect: Emily Fox
Status: Complete

With a view over national parkland and across the ocean to the horizon, this house is designed for easy living and to please the senses. Yet it is also practical - built with solid, durable, tactile materials. Bluestone, Anthra-Zinc, glass and wood are combined externally and internally in an environmentally responsive manner.

External walls and screens open and close, providing the rooms with privacy or shading. The narrow width and orientation of the building maximises cross ventilation and sunlight filtration throughout each space.

This house received Contribution to the Built Environment at the 2009 Mosman Design Awards.
