Modern Residence Perfectly Adapted to Its Challenging Site: Point Piper House

 


Architects Popov Bass Architects have completed the Point Piper House, a modern residence located in Sydney, Australia. The building site offered some major challenges for the architects. Stretching from the street edge 420 square meters East, the site in sot leveled, but drops vertically towards the harbor. Here is more on the project’s structure from the developers: “The client brief was for a three bedroom house with the living area at the lowest level to best utilize the outdoor garden space. As the entry to the dwelling was on the third story (at street level) it was necessary to design the building to provide a sense of arrival and to clearly define the unusual entry sequence. A four story void scallops out the building to unify all the levels and provides the sense of arrival at the top level. The void is expressed on the exterior of the building as a tapering blade that grows through the otherwise rectilinear building form. The primary views are to the north-east so that the entire house plan skews northwards to allow bedroom and living areas to enjoy this aspect to further animate the building form.” The interiors present unusual perspectives and a refined modern design. Have a look! (Photographs: Kraig Carlstrom)
