Australian studio Luigi Rosselli Architects has sent us photos of the Euryalus Street  house project.

This two story contemporary residence is located in Mosman, a suburb on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia.

Euryalus Street House by Luigi Rosselli Architects:

“Euryalus House is a new 2 storey dwelling with a swimming pool, garage and landscaping. The plan of this house has two distinct wings and a narrow connection between the two. The connection contains a transparent stainless steel and glass stair suspended over an inside/outside pond and is washed by abundant light from a skylight above.

The larger wing is rectangular and rationally planned, the shorter wing is the more irregularly shaped curved section of the house. The front and rear facades are well mannered and integrate the garage and pool seamlessly, having a positive impact to its neighbourhood.

With its northerly elevated location, it takes advantage of the cooling north easterly breezes, and good solar access. The house is not air-conditioned and is designed to keep cool in summer with ample shutter-controlled natural lighting and ventilation, and has two substantial rainwater tanks for irrigation, toilet cisterns and pool top-up use.

This dwelling differs from its neighbours in that the garage is fully integrated with the lower floor walls and is under advertised. It downplays the impact of the garage and doesn’t allow the house to “turn its back” on the public realm as is so often the case.”
