About the project: The site is located within a steep ‘battle axe’ allotment on Sydney’s Balmoral slopes, affording iconic views over Balmoral Beach and the Sydney Harbour headlands.

The design solution should maximise the expansive iconic views to the east of the property and resolve the difficult access created by the ‘battle axe’ allotment.
