This incredible four level luxury residence was designed by Sydney-based architecture studio MPR Design and is situated in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The design of the Vaucluse House wasÂ built to reflect the topography and landform of the Sydney Harbor basin, featuring expansive harbor views from upper levels. The contemporary property is comprised of various horizontal layers, all contributing to unique visual contrasts given by the materials employed (steel, glass and locally hewn sandstone). According to the architects, â€œthe four storey residence incorporates its primary living areas on the top floor taking advantage of 180 degree views of the city and harbour. With exposure to the north and west and the ability to open up completely to the outside, the house has effective cross ventilation negating the use of air conditioning. The house is connected by a light filled stair shaft with entry via a double height foyer located on the bedroom level. A seamless transition between internal and external spaces means that living areas flow to outdoor balconies and covered terraces.â€
