Sticks & Stones Home can be called by whatever name cruel passersby want, but the home and its residents will hardly mind. Anyone looking on the home would be hard-pressed to come up with an apt insult anyway, as the attractively designed abode brings to bear the universally loved mid-century modern aesthetic of classic titans of architecture like Frank Lloyd Wright and Eero Saarinen.

Though the area in which Sticks & Stones Home is built, Hunters Hill, was subdivided from Sydney proper in the 19th century, not many of the surrounding homes adhere to the same mid-century modern stylings. Instead, many of the houses in the area make ample use of sandstone, with a Victorian height that juxtaposes against the expansive width of the classic architectural style. Sticks & Stones Home makes use of sandstone as well, but it builds that yellow stone into cobbled walls that transport one back in time.
