Event Details


In November we will be visiting a house in Castle Cove by TERROIR who are an international office practicing architecture, urban planning and creative research and is dedicated to the realisation of projects that insist on the invention of new possibilities out of each unique condition.

The history of the single-family house in Sydney during the last century is a record of changing conditions in regard to our relationship with the landscape.

Castle Cove is a classic Sydney context, landscape and geology - a steep, rocky ravine with tributaries connecting to Sydney Harbour featuring large areas of remnant bushland below which sandstone escarpments define the waterways.  The sandstone geology appears at multiple scales from large cliff faces to small ruptures throughout the groundplane.

The geometry of this Castle Cove house is deliberately indeterminate, working in and around existing stone escarpments as a "third element" that over time and with patination will slip more and more from the new to pre-existing.

The concrete interior is lined with a series of timber elements that enable the occupation of this concrete landscape with a spirit and glamour reminiscent of the California houses from the 50s and 60s by John Lautner and others.            


Please arrive at the start point NO EARLIER than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.  The project will be opened from 11am to 12noon with the design process being explained.  You are welcome to come anytime within the specified time. Event is not wheelchair accessible, children under 12 not permitted and no pets allowed. Tickets are non-refundable
