The Seed House was one of 5 houses on show on the AAA Residential Tour on the 7th March 2020. On arrival, not much was revealed from the street of the house except for the garage. However, once inside, the interior was stunning.
The entry to the house was approached by steps down from the street. The site is very large and fan shaped. It is narrow at the street and becomes wider as you move down the site. This geometry is reflected in the wedge shaped form of the house. The site connects with the bush reserve below which adjoins Sugarloaf Bay.
James Fitzpatrick is the architect and owner of the house. His approach was experimental as he explored different ideas in the choice of the fittings, finishes and materials to achieve his design ideas and then the final built form. These decisions influenced the interior and exterior aesthetic of the house. James labeled the house as his “forever house”.
