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.


Katrina and Alister did an outstanding job designing our house for us; we liked their design philosophy and, in working through the design, we felt they struck a pleasant balance between aesthetic goals and practical and budgeting requirements for the home.

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.


I told my children that they are so lucky to have a home that is world class and envied by many.

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