Night Sky of Blackheath wins Robin Boyd Award for residential architecture

Whenkeen radio astronomer and mathematician/engineer, Blackheath’s Basil Borun, asked for a home with a window to the night sky, he never expected it would be a national award winner.

But his 130 square metre home – Night Sky – with its oval skylight to the Milky Way, has recently taken out the prestigious Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New).

Designed by award winning Peter Stutchbury Architecture, it was built in two years by Glenbrook’s Mark Tam of Dimark Constructions with many local recycled materials and a stunning and unique parabola roof.
