Some of Sydney’s grandest homes are to be found in the city’s hinterland. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, a magnificent residence designed by Darryl Lock Studio sits proudly amongst its peers.
Known as the Dural project by Dan Kitchens, the expansive and very private family home was completely fitted out in exquisite Jarrah joinery, carefully following the architect’s master plan which made extensive use of the deeply coloured and much loved Australian native timber species. As the accompanying photography shows, the substantial home is surrounded by green pastures and a distant tree line.
Whether admiring the views from the inside or the outside, massive, solid Jarrah posts and beams firmly anchor the property and provide context for the equally substantial timber and joinery elements that define the interiors of this project.
