From the street, this harbourside home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs appears like a piece of op art. The rectangular façade, made of tilted glass and steel, picks up shadow lines from the sun as they move throughout the day. The geometric façade conceals a wonderful curvaceous form, like a cedar ‘curtain’ wrapping around the enviable site. The two voids, which cut through the home’s S-shape elevation, add drama to the spaces as the light changes through the day.
