A damn fine second Sydney School example now, an offering from one of the headmasters therof – a 1963 Russell Jack designed, award winning home in near mint condish, which (from all feet on-ground reports) is sooooo extra-extra, more than the newer sale pics convey. Not surprising. Apparently the client, Supreme Court Justice Jacobs, desired a tranquil retreat from his day-on-the-bench-grind, with a certain degree of sophistication. This goal achieved with aplomb by the architect utilising his trademark raw materials anchoring this residence directly to the earth yet constructed with the considered and sleek Modernist spatial configuration, including internal courtyard. Ooooh yes.
