Castlecrag is renowned for its significant 20th century homes, including those designed by eminent architects, such as Walter Burley Griffin and Peter Muller. It was with this legacy in mind, as well as the need to create a fine contemporary home that resulted in this new house.
As with many of the architectural gems that are beautifully anchored into Castlecrag’s rocky and hilly terrain, this home is well secured into its site. Not offering too much to the street, the home is beautifully revealed once past the fine copper front door.
With large and fluid open plan spaces, combined with dramatic voids, the Gillespie House shows the importance of restraint and responds to the northern light and the site’s unique topographical features.
