Similar but different – Twin houses

September 12, 2019

The unique shape of this twin house was defined by irregular site boundary and desire to relate to the urban streetscape around it, as well as engage with panoramic views of the Opera House perfectly framed by the Harbour Bridge. The contemporary and modern interiors celebrate materials and form with steel plate, painted recycled brick and natural stone.

Textural qualities of STS Stone’s Travertine Grigio Chiaro extensively used indoor and on the beautiful terraces, showcase its beauty and versatility.

The curved end of the house, responding to the site’s shape, was the perfect place to create a free-standing spiral staircase. The stairs made of steel plate and grey travertine, combined with their unique shape required meticulous planning, construction and installation resulting in an impressive sculpturally stunning curved staircase over three levels.
