Magnificent Houses from around the world is a weekly architecture series that we showcase one beautiful and inspiring house that is located somewhere in the globe. This week we showcase a house near Sydney by Durbach Block Jaggers Architects.
The curved forms of the kitchen and living room, which project over the sea supported by four angled stilts, are derived from the torso of Picasso’s The Bather. The two-storey Holman House was completed atop the 70 metre-high cliff at Dover Heights back in 2004. Stone walls surround bedrooms on the ground floor, which nestle against the rock face. Terraces surrounding the house at different levels provide two patios, a top floor garden and a lower level swimming pool
