Humphrey Homes Mosman Park architect residence

A striking Japanese-inspired house in Mosman Park attracted its fair share of admirers while it was being built – and now here’s chance to get a sneak peek inside.

The house at 31 Beagle Street was designed and built by Humphrey Homes.  Director Dean Humphrey said it would be open on November 2 and 3 from 11am – 3pm, or by appointment.

“The house is deliberately very private from the street with the architecture deliberately intriguing,” Mr Humphrey said.

“The cantilevered box that floats in the street is sheathed in shou sugi ban, which roughly translates to burnt cedar wood.

Shou sugi ban is an ancient Japanese practice of charring timber to protect it from the weather.”
