Neeson Murcutt’s Castlecrag project on Radio National

Neeson Murcutt’s Castlecrag project on Radio National

Hear from Architect Rachel Neeson as she takes By Design’s Janne Ryan on a tour of the award-winning Castlecrag project.

Join an audio tour of the four-level family house in Castlecrag on Sydney Harbour that won Neeson’s firm the Australian Institute of Architect’s 2011 Robin Boyd Award (one of Australia’s most important awards for a house).

A substantial re-development of an old family house, its palette is re-cycled bricks, steel and timber, and concrete. The house sits in the sandstone in the Australian bush overlooking Sydney Harbour; due to this site, it is built to be as safe as possible in bush fires.
