Mosman House in Sydney

Design: Corben Architects

Location: Sydney, Australia

Located on a large & prominent waterfront site, we were engaged to undertake major alterations and additions to this substantial home that was first built in the 1980’s.

Mosman House

The property comprises a two storey garage structure with guest accommodation and a gymnasium, a three storey home and a boatshed. All three buildings were stripped back to the bare shell and rebuilt. The façades of the home, boatshed and garage have been transformed through the use of a combination of sandstone, zinc and timber cladding.

On the upper level a new terrace off the bedrooms was added while elsewhere existing terraces were expanded by the realignment of new full height glazed walls.

Internally the planning was reorganized to provide a more functional layout. The interior design by Interni created a new streamlined & sophisticated interior using Isernia limestone flooring, pale timber veneers, off-form concrete and polished plaster finishes. The central stair was rebuilt with new finishes and details to create a more sculptural form.

A swimming pool was demolished and a larger pool with teak decking was relocated to open up the garden and provide a connection between the home and the waterfront. As you descend the site and approach the home the new landscape design by the Dangar Group employs interlocking zinc clad boxes with lush planting stepping down the site. The rear garden is more open with a large central expanse of lawn, a green roof on the boatshed and tree aloes growing through the pool terrace.

The result is a smart contemporary home in a beautiful new landscape setting.
