The Mosman Park House is located on an elevated corner site overlooking the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia.
The house is in two simple parts – a long shed with a transverse fully openable wing. The north elevation of the shed element runs parallel with the side street. The elevation is fully glazed and protected with remotely operated louvres to control privacy and allow for complete summer sun exclusion and full winter sun penetration.
The transverse wing runs parallel with the front street and is set back from it. The elevation of the land creates valuable privacy to the street frontage while also allowing unobstructed broad river views.
The shed is a simple steel framed structure with Teak cladding. Internally a second central Teak box contains all service areas.
Notwithstanding the large glazed openings, the house is private, shaded in summer, sun soaked in winter and largely openable to take advantage of the Australian climate and the outstanding river views.
