Luigi Rosselli Architects has designed the ‘Hill House’, a new house in Sydney, Australia, that sits on a steep site with views of the harbour.
The house features a lightening shaped zinc roof, while the garage is concealed below a green roof. A cobbled entry courtyard, surrounded by three sandstone walls reinforce the entry and converge on the front door.
A white concrete awning that widens towards the front door has a circular glass skylight to spotlight the entry.
The front door has a brass woven ribbon mesh exterior, with a door handle design by Blake Letnic, that appears as a straightforward timber board, but also conceals a molded back section, ergonomically shaped to provide a strong grip.
The interior of the front door is covered in travertine slabs, like on the walls, and provides a contrast to the dark timber floor.
Inside the home, the front entry is set at mid-level, with the stairs connecting the various floors of the home. Upstairs the landing leads to the bedrooms, while downstairs the stair widens, leading to the light filled living areas.
A Lindsey Adelman branching bubble chandelier adds a decorative touch, while the paintings are ‘Antara’ by Betty Kunita Pumani and ‘Sweets’ by Ildiko Kovacs.
In the dining room, walnut wall paneling adds warmth to the room, that also features travertine flooring. To the right of the dining table is a bar where the owner keeps his collection of rare whiskeys.
