Church Point House is a project designed by CHROFI. The design responds to a steep one directional Western facing site overlooking Sydney’s Pittwater. Photography by Katherine Lu.
A large sunken courtyard is cut into the escarpment at the rear of the dwelling, providing a meditative and calming outlook from adjoining spaces, a juxtaposition to the site’s expansive and sometimes extreme primary aspect. Transparency within the dwelling’s core provides an interconnectivity between these contrasting edges allowing the habitants to experience an ever-changing quality of light and atmosphere, whilst connecting to the landscape.
