Abode, Mosman

In lieu of a traditional approach to conservation area of working with primary solid material palette, a 2-storey streetscape presentation was introduced through a central pivoting adjustable screen and balcony fa├žade which could totally enclosed that space and give the appearance of a 2-storey great wall. A modern interpretation of classic built form engages the upper levels with a set-back forming a terrace facing the main street frontage that forms a continuation of the dominant pattern within the urban context. Subtle changes in material and a lightened sense of detail emerges as one approaches the upper levels defining each tier of the building and its relationship to the overall form, solid to void balance, and scale of surrounding buildings.
