Harbour Front-Row Seat by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Modern home in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia designed by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

It is quite rare, in Woollahra Council’s municipality, to have a house waterfront residence so close to the water. One gets the feeling of being in Sydney Harbour when looking out of the oversized wafer-thin framed windows.

Luigi Rosselli Architects won a limited architectural competition to develop the site by proposing to revive the existing three storey house while the competitors opted for a clean slate solution. Adaptive reuse is the best way to keep a carbon footprint small and the strategy was rewarded in this waterfront property by maintaining the foreshore building line just a few steps from the water. A new house would have to be set further back.
