Bellevue Hill Residence

The Bellevue Hill House, originally designed by architect Frank Fox in the 1960s, is an architectural landmark characterised by its mid-century design and distinctive semi-circular, snail-shaped exoskeleton structure. The Haron Robson team collaborated with Tzannes Associates to integrate contemporary lighting, audio-visual and electrical systems without compromising the home’s original charm.

Our role involved advising, designing, and documenting the lighting, audio-visual, and electrical systems to honour the original design and introduce modern functionality. The challenge was to navigate the house’s unique structure, ensuring that the lighting complemented both the interior spaces and the external environment, particularly the central Hills Fig tree which serves as a natural focal point for the residence.

The house features notable architectural elements, including retractable curved glazing and timber blades to optimise sunlight. The Haron Robson team ensured that these elements were supported by modern systems, enhancing functionality while preserving aesthetic integrity.

The Bellevue Hill Residence have since been recognised by several prestigious awards, such as:

Commendation in Residential Architecture Houses (Alterations and Additions) – 2013 NSW Australian Institute of Architecture Awards for Tzannes Associates

Shorlisted for Residential Design – 2014 Australian Interior Designs Awards for Tzannes Associates
