House Holman by Durbach Block Architects.
One photo would never have done this house justice. Nor would be leaving the name and architect. This award winning house was completed in 2004, but we understand that is never too late to reconnect with great work that exemplifies our language of modernism. The utilisation of black columns structurally anchors large openings in the exterior skin and reminds me of iconic works by Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe use of black trim and framing.
The Holman House is fluid in plan and elevation. Walls lead you to multiple floor-to-ceiling windows that liberate you to the sea. The neutral and natural palette of the space allows the blue ocean to enter the house and become part of the interior palette while keeping plenty of natural light affording comfort to the interior environment. The design of the house fully responds to the natural elements which accompany it - sun, landscape and views. The house celebrates the sun and sea of Sydney while responding to the modern language of architecture. Effortlessly beautiful.
