This house in Mosman, on Sydney’s Lower North Shore, had suffered a number of renovations over its life.
The rear of the house overlooks Middle Harbour; the problem we had to address was at the front of the house, with a confused entry and poor connection to the garden. The re-organisation of this house clearly defines formal and private zones, which overlap and merge around a new stair and informal room at landing level.

The reconfiguration of the levels invites the landscape back into the house, revealing the traces of the original bungalow while introducing a distinctly modern spatial order.
