Completed in April 2006, the Architects, Marchese & Partners have designed a remarkable house at Mosman. The house is a combination of blockwork and concrete structure with very little amount of walls. The main external walls on all levels are floor to ceiling glass panels and feature stacking glass doors.
The main floor areas are recycled ironbark flooring, even the stairs are designed to give the impression that the ironbark treads just float out of the walls.
The bathrooms are a mix of reconstituted stone slabs and tiles with new age fittings and fixtures such as concealed cisterns all wall hung pans and basins.
Other features of the home include a lift, internal/external pond water feature to entry, recessed skritings and sandstone cladding to some external walls and custom built joinery.
Pimas Gale overcame all difficulties on the site to produce a high standard project and the home was a worthy finalist in the MBA 2006 Excellence in Housing Awards. The home is also featured in the January 2007 issue of Australian House & Garden Magazine page 78-83 and Luxury Kitchen & Bathrooms Magazine June 07 issue page 39-42.
