This 1960s ‘Oculus’ home by Aussie architect Frank Fox has hit the market in Sydney following a refresh by Tzannes Associates.
The Sydney practice worked with landscape architect William Danger and interior designers Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke to refurbish Fox’s circular design, which was recognised by the NSW Australian Institute of Architecture Awards when it completed.
It features a partly domed roof, which channels light into the Sydney property’s living spaces. At the same time, retractable curved windows wrap around the home and offer 270-degree views of Danger’s freshly landscaped grounds, and the house’s original focal point – a mature Hills Fig Tree.
The kitchen – which features a timber and stone island, and concealed sliding doors which lead into the living room – has been completely updated while respecting the original footplate of the modernist property.
