Middle Harbour House in Sydney Showcasing a Dramatic Layered Character 1

Building Middle Harbour House overlooking Sydney Harbour was considered a privilege not to be undertaken lightly by the creative minds at Richard Cole Architecture. According to their statement, this modern dwelling strives to encourage the everyday experiences of a family and contributes to the rich context of the populated slopes that extend into the waterway: “A sculptural response to an exposed corner site overlooking Middle Harbour builds on the materiality of the existing sandstone base to create a dramatic and layered form. By careful manipulation of openings the substantial house achieves a balance of privacy and outlook, light and shelter, texture and warmth. ”

A mix of materials and textures give the residence a distinct personality, one that inspires both elegance and familiarity: “The warm, substantial character of the dwelling is carefully composed by means of the clarity of detailing, a palette of tactile natural materials and the careful manipulation of light. The building aspires to beauty, substance and place making in order to provide a vessel in which a family can grow”, further explained the architects. We dare you to discover the welcoming interior this project has to offer and let us in on your opinions! Photography by Simon Wood
