This sculptural home in the Sydney suburb of Castle Cove evokes a winged creature nestled into the hillside above the bay.

The distinctive shape comes from the structure’s cantilevered rooflines, which slope gently down from the edges, and its trapezoidal concrete walls. Merged with steel, glass and wood, the home feels firmly grounded in the landscape.

Inspired by the work of American Modernist architect John Lautner, the house was a seven-year collaborative effort by the homeowners, Terroir Architects and interior designer Pascale Gomes-McNabb to create the feeling of living in nature. An adjoining land reserve and thoughtfully plotted gardens heighten that sensation.
