Harp House

The design of the home and landscape is positioned on three levels to gradually step down and follow the lines of the naturally sloping site. The footprint is cleverly arranged around a number of courtyard spaces, breaking up the large 600 square metre house’s forms, to create smaller courtyard spaces to provide sheltered areas for various recreational use.


Dravitzki Brown have been a great architectural studio to work with. I would have no hesitation to engage them for any future building projects.

The low pitched roof forms long horizontal lines and its large overhangs allow the house to further nestle into its setting. Expansive glazing throughout enables the owners to enjoy stunning views from almost every space in the property.


We relied on Katrina and Alister to supervise the build in our absence and had no difficulty in liaising with them via the internet about various decisions. The builder was very impressed with Alister and Katrina and the quality and detail of their plans which he found very easy to work with.

Harp house is constructed predominately out of locally sourced schist stone, and complimented with smaller amounts of steel, concrete, glass and timber.
