Steeply sloped home renovation, Mosman

The client’s brief to architect:  “We want to create a beautiful, open plan living room that makes the most of our great views and orientation.”

About the Original Home

The existing Mosman home was built into a hill and located on a steeply elevated block. In fact the block is so steep, there is a 30° slope down to street level. This vantage point gives the house spectacular views of Balmoral Beach.

The home itself was built during the 1960s in the “Sydney School” style of architecture. This architectural period valued the use of natural, rustic materials such as clinker bricks and timbers. They were often built on steep slopes and used natural bushland, raked roof lines and low gutter lines to conceal the home from the street.
