Askill House

The deviation of light.

Askill House. A 10th floor apartment set in the 1950s block, Oceana. Oceana is positioned at the keyhole of Sydney's Elizabeth Bay and sits at the eastern end of the point, avoiding obstructions to the view. A north-easterly aspect allows light to fill Askill House throughout the day. A full-height, west-facing kitchen window allows afternoon light and views of the sunset into the one-bedroom apartment. Walls are mirror-clad, creating a prism to reflect harbour views while also maximizing the availability of natural light. Carrara marble lines the kitchen surfaces, and french oak cabinetry casts a mid-century tone across Askill House.
