Sydney’s East Killara will soon welcome a breathtaking addition to its architectural landscape, courtesy of design duo Johnstone & Johnson. Situated in an elevated position overlooking the picturesque Garigal National Park, this contemporary masterpiece seamlessly blends modern aesthetics with a deep reverence for its natural surroundings.

From the street, the home makes an immediate statement with its bold design language. Combining timber cladding, exposed concrete, and black metal feature cladding, the exterior exudes a striking presence that sets it apart from neighbouring properties. However, it’s not merely about appearances; every element serves a purpose in harmonising the structure with its environment.

The primary focus of the design was to maximise the stunning views of the surrounding national park. To achieve this, extensive floor-to-ceiling glazing has been used on  both levels of the home, forging a strong connection between the interior spaces and the serene outdoors. Connection with the landscape has also been achieved by dividing the home into two distinct volumes separated by an internal alfresco courtyard, this also serves to flood the home with natural light while maintaining privacy and tranquility.
