The planning and palette of this house overlooking the harbour and national park is simple yet accommodated the owners needs at the time and still continues to do so.

Flat roofs and large cantilevers identify the building while large glass areas capitalise on the views and sun. Internally shadowline detailing is found around the doors and ceilings and follows the streamlined planning.

The house design was praised by writer Eva Buhrich, who wrote a newspaper article at the time, reflecting on architecture in 1973. Her favourites for that year were Sydney’s Opera house and a number of individual homes, including the Castlecrag house, one of a select few. ‘Nothing spectacular has happened in home building, except for these projects’.
