Jolson's renovation and reinterpretation of Robin Boyd's 1954 Richardson House is a triumph. The original house was literally built as a bridge to resolve site difficulties by spanning a dry creek bed that ran through the lot. The Melbourne-based studio's additions address the iconic shape, extrapolating Boyd's exploration of geometry with circles and tangents. The new glances the old, meets, embraces, pulls away all the time celebrating the interplay of house and landscape.

I think I'll be scrolling through these images over and over. Bright sun, amazing views of Sydney, intimate garden. By Peter Fudge Gardens.
