Curry Residence


The Curry Street House is a high-end residential project sited prominently overlooking Merewether and Newcastle City. From the street the house is subtle and turned into the hill-side with an entry awning stretching around the side of the house directing one away from the expansive views. This provides a moment of separation and shelter that is firmly grounded by masonry in the hill-side.  The robust material continues inside providing a contrast to the lightness of the cantilevered-deck and eave reaching beyond. The long, thin eave accentuates the horizontality of the horizon beyond while controlling shade and shelter. The two-storey house is split to accomodate a living and master retreat over additional bedrooms and a pool-side entertaining area. The cantilevered deck reaches into a double height entertaining space providing a variety of outdoor spaces.
