This project received the 2012 NSW AIA Wilkinson Award and an AIA National Award for outstanding residential architecture.


Awards jury comments: “Conceived as a… veiled scaffold along a sandstone cliff, this house displays excellence in conception and execution…The quality of the house is affirmed in the detailing. A rationalised frame of steel and recycled timber is articulated though junctions of mature beauty and judgement: the house rewards close inspection with a fine demonstration of proportioning and durability. This impression of quality is punctuated by a jeweller’s feel for brass as a decorative handrail or balustrade…in a house whose overall order reveals a deep well of experience.”


Architecture: joint project Fergus Scott Architects with Peter Stutchbury Architecture.
