Holman House Design By Durbach Block Architects

Holman House design built on the edge of the 70 meter high cliff which refers to the Picasso’s painting The Bather. It is located in the town of Dover Heights, west of the city of Sydney in Australia. According to the architects, Holman house contains a complex series of fluid living spaces set within a meandering perimeter that arcs, folds and stretches in response to sun, landscape and views.

Living and dining areas cantilever out over the ocean, allowing dramatic views up and down the coast. The lower floor forms a base that is built from rough stone walls like an extension of the cliff below. These walls continue along the cliff edge to form a series of eccentric terraced gardens and a vase-shaped rock pool.
