Woolwich House

 The owners asked Michael to design a formal Italianate home on the banks of the Lane Cove River at Woolwich. A glazed loggia was designed as the main living space and was flanked by a formal sitting and dining room with a covered terrace to complete the architecture of the building. A vaulted two storey ceiling hovers over the entrance hall with its stone clad walls and antiquated marble flooring and a sculptured iron balustrade lines the stone stair case. With the high ceilings, special details could be made in the joinery and all timber fittings and wardrobe details were designed for the house which is unusual in its grand scale.
