Holman House, precariously situated at the top of the 70m high cliff at Dover Heights, was completed in 2004 by an Australian firm Durbach Block Jagger Architects.

The house contains a complex series of fluid living spaces set within a meandering perimeter that arcs, folds and stretches in response to sun, landscape and views.

As described by the Architects, the design of the house is based on Picasso's painting 'The Bather'.

Living and dining areas cantilever out over the ocean, allowing dramatic views up and down the coast. The lower floor forms a base that is built from rough stone walls like an extension of the cliff below. These walls continue along the cliff edge to form a series of eccentric terraced gardens and a vase-shaped rock pool.
