Mosman Park Residence

Architecture and building by Humphrey Homes

Block size: 809 sqm
Duration of Building Contract: 18 months
Actual Build Time: 16 months

This bold home has been conceived to be dramatic, mysterious and delicate all at once.

Cubic in form, the floating box structure adds an air of mystery and intrigue as it sits suspended in the street.   Sheathed in the ancient Japanese method of shou sugi ban, it allows glimpses inside while also encapsulating privacy for the family.

While the home is introverted from the street, inside it is the opposite with an open and extroverted nature.  Making the most of the northern light, each room faces the central outdoor courtyard for maximum living permeability and entertaining options.

In-house architect Helen Marchesani said the home was deliberately intriguing.

“The architecture is exciting as it is contradictory in nature but has a balance that works.  The cubic form and vertical windows instil a sense of curiosity and wonder externally, but internally, a very different emotion is delivered,” Helen said.

“It is both deliberately introverted outside but purposely extroverted inside.

“Elementally raw materials also feature heavily in the design with the juxtaposition of water, timber and concrete all working in unison.”

“Having built previously, we would have said confidently that it’s next to impossible to ever be completely satisfied with your builder. But to our amazement we have been. Dean and his marvellous team of industry professionals have delivered our family home just as we wanted it and to an impeccable standard. It's been amazing to watch the initial hand drawn sketches transform into this beautiful architectural home!”
