Imposing, Diverse and Inspiring: River House by MCK Architects

The diverse and stunning River House was designed by MCK Architects and is located in Sydney, Australia. A massive project, impressive from any angle, the building relates to its “steep and awkwardly shaped” site and is said to reflect the personality of the Lane Cove river situated in its vicinity. Here is more on the home’s structure from the architects: “The First Floor shingle box remains largely recessive from the river side. Generous circulation zones greet the user upon entry. A wedge-shaped joinery box floating in plan like an island, separates the circulation zones from the main Living Zone, and thus heighten the experience of the journey through the space. The Main Living Zone is a bent tube shaped form with the Kitchen as the fulcrum. From this space, significant views can be obtained of the local natural precinct.” Inside and out, this residence impresses and inspires. Enjoy this incredible home skilfully photographed by Steve Back.

    Love the wood, the sandstone, the kitchen. Never want to relax with my car grill staring at me!

    I was wandering if someone could give me this house for a present ;). Truly amazing!

    MCK Architects are my all-time favorite posts on Freshome. They just know aesthetics: The marriage of the building the home within the sight lines of nature are immaculate — day and night.

    Stay tuned into The Light.

    Sorry to say that this “showpiece” is rather vulgar and nouveau riche. Materials are exploited as “eye candy” rather than as sensual pleasures: poor taste.
