Notes:
'When Muller returned from studying in the United States in the 1950s he moved to Sydney where his first architectural work was the Audette House at Castlecrag, NSW in 1952 in which the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright is evident. Following this Muller built his own house at Whale Beach, NSW in 1955. This was a family home which nestled into its site. Muller used earthy colours, dark timbers, and large expanses of glass including a glass roof to the living area (Taylor 1972: 28). The Richardson House at Palm Beach, NSW (1956) was a radial design which featured a fibre-glass domed foyer and circular rooms. His architecture has been described as being ‘characterized by a strong sense of geometry and axial composition’ (Drew 1988: 681). The Patrick house of 1959-61 at Castlecrag further expresses his environmental sensitivity with the house moulded around a large natural rock face. The Gunning house (1960) at Castlecrag is said to be a culmination of his ideas about domestic architecture (Drew 1988: 681).' -- From the Architect's Database.
