A Sydney home’s homage to Oscar Niemeyer

Posted on Fri, 17 Jun 2022 by KiM

Overall our clients felt that the major elements of the layout of their home (designed in classic modernist style by the architect George Reeves in 1963) worked well, however the connections between the indoor and outdoor spaces were poor and the house was generally beginning to look its age, as such improving those connections and restoring and enhancing the home in line with the original architect’s intent were the main focus of this renovation. Influences from the work of legendary Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer are evident throughout the house, and no more clearly can this be seen than in the voluptuous form of the concrete awning that covers the entry and provides the first impression one receives when approaching via the lushly planted drive.  Once inside, those influences, and the broader design elements that anchor the home in the modernist era, continue in the form of carefully restored original features such as the single stringer and cantilevered switchback stair, and the sinuous curved ceiling bulkheads in the lounge, dining and kitchen spaces. An absolutely gorgeous modern minimalist home with update by Luigi Rosselli.
