Kirribilli, Sydney, Australia
Interior, exterior and aerial photos page: 1
Luigi Rosselli is an Italian born architect who practices in Australia. He was born in Milan in 1957. He studied architecture at the Ecole Politechnique Federale in Lausanne, where he met Alvaro Siza and Mario Botta, who offered Rosselli a job in 1979. He left the next year to work for Mitchell/Giurgola in their New York office. That firm won a commission to design the Australian Parliament House, and Rosselli moved to Canberra in 1981 to work on that project.”
From his website: “The brief was to provide a comfortable house. What makes a house comfortable? It’s not a question of good padding on the lounges but the ability of a building to provide a climatically comfortable environment, a place where you seek refuge from the heat of the day or in the cold nights, without having to barricade yourself behind hermetically shut windows.
The rammed earth walls and well located operable skylights, the sun drenched courtyard and the breezy verandah, the green roof and external shutters have all contributed to a most liveable waterfront residence and to win the AIA sustainable design award for 2011.The design was awarded as a proof that sustainable architecture can be applied to the top end of Residential architecture. The architecture is complemented by a strikingly original landscape design by Terragram.”
