Project summary

Trilogy House sits on the edge of Pittwater looking north up the bay. Located on a steep populated slope, surrounding residences are ever expanding. Designed by Peter Muller in the early ‘60’s and added to by Glenn Murcutt in the ‘90’s, the pedigree was already daunting.

Subsequent to meetings with Mr Muller, both the clients and architects elected to contribute a chapter to the story.

Additions and modifications to this project were undertaken with reference to the past and a contribution to the future. The mindset in architecture needs to shift to answer issues of waste, energy, recycling, capacity and humanity. Projects that capture a responsible architectural outcome will re-enforce the means by which architecture can re-shape the world- management of resources can no longer be left to those who most profit, it should be critiqued by those who care.

This wonderfully proportioned home provides areas of contrast that sit perfectly in interconnecting spaces.
Light/dark spaces, high/low ceilings create different moods by day and night.

The clever use of new and recycled timber, dark ceilings, fluted glass and the warm tones of copper, create a home that is both spacious and light.

With unobstructed water views by day, yet glows like a lantern at night.

The house incorporates a lot of fine detail which is a testament to the harmonious collaboration between architect and builder.
We have derived much satisfaction watching this home evolve into the “beauty” it is.
