This month's NSW At Home with the Architect visits Balmoral House, an award winning residence designed by Melbourne based Clinton Murray Architects in association with Sydney based architectural practice Polly Harbison Design. On Sunday 28 August, tour participants will be able to explore the interiors and exteriors of Balmoral House as Clinton Murray explains its design.
Inspired by the client’s love of artistic experimentation and sculptural forms, Balmoral House is a union of engineering and architecture, comprising carefully arranged concrete forms that are stacked and arrayed across the site to respond to views, sun and privacy.
Located in an area typically dominated by high fences and intercoms, Balmoral House is deliberately designed to connect with the community, allowing passers-by to touch and feel the building and look through to framed views over the beach and to the harbour beyond.
