Exterior Overview of Classic Home 050, Artists' House in N. Sydney, by Glenn Murcutt, Architect.
"The house is a long, low, single-story column and beam platform house entirely constructed in steel with a corrugated curved roof and timber terraces. It sits poised above the undulating ground level on its six I-section columns protected from bush fires with complete coverage from an external sprinkler system. The house was designed, according to the architect, to provide the minimum interference with nature and the existing site. A small, open-sided platform bridge runs from the car parking enclosure to the house itself, another precarious reminder of the vulnerability of living in the countryside. Adjacent to the house are two commercial farmyard Dutch barns, purchased straight out of a catalogue but ingeniously converted into spacious and waterproof artists' studios." — Dennis Sharp. Twentieth Century Architecture: a Visual History. p378.
