Richard Leplastier is a significant force in Australian architecture and education. His is a gentle force though. His buildings respond not only to the physical site but the spirit of place. A simple but deeply meaningful relationship to home and land and culture. Angophora House is in Avalon, Sydney, home to a builder who has crafted other Leplastier designs. It is not often I stumble upon such gems while real estate stalking. A series of pavilions sits gently on the slope in intimate contact with a grove of Angophora trees. Relaxed and natural it is none the less highly designed and carefully formed. At one with its environment. Peaceful. Gentle. Beautiful. Link here while it lasts.
