A house with a pool is not exactly an extraordinary thing. But if the house were to have an infinity edge pool things definitely change. The whole thing becomes even more interesting if the building itself has something that stands out like let’s say a sculptural facade. Right now we’re actually describing the Mosman House, a beautiful single-family residence located in Sydney, Australia.
The house was designed by architect Rolf Ockert and the whole process started in 2014. It ended in 2017 and this is the result: a gorgeous home with everything a family could wish for. It puts together a wonderful mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, like this sunken seating area out on the deck, pushed towards the back so it can offer panoramic views, the same as the infinity edge pool.
The architect believes that timelessness comes from true quality and that style is the personal touch that makes all the difference. These ideas were employed when designing the Mosman House and that’s the point of origin for its unique and eye-catching features such as this sculptural facade pattern that use glass panels to let light in.
It was important for the interior spaces to be bright, open and full of light and they get that thanks to the huge windows and the orientation of the house. Artificial lighting is also important and the pendant lamps and chandeliers are amazing and eye-catching throughout the house. The lounge area is particularly outstanding, featuring a beautiful balance of colors, textures and finishes. A gray sectional sofa together with two Mart chairs frame the space.
A pair of Mad chairs frame this living area and set a visual barrier between it and the outdoor lounge deck by the pool. The pendant lamps add a sophisticated touch to the space while also introducing a new color. The kitchen gets to welcoming light and views inside too. It has long, horizontal windows and a rather simple decor based mostly on wood.
