Australian architect who designed a number of Sydney's buildings including the football stadium, aquarium and exhibition center.

The small architectural practice that Cox and partners opened in 1967 has grown to an international practice with offices around the world. Aptly named The Cox Group, the firm has won several awards for architectural planning and interior design.

In 1981 Philip Cox began work on his weekender home in Palm Beach, Australia. The three-level home is built into the side of the clifftop with stunning views across Broken Bay, Pittwater and the Central Coast.

With his penchant for hosting guests and entertaining, Cox designed his home to indulge his love for cooking, hosting luxurious parties, and accommodate guests. The top deck of the home can easily hold 100 people and guest quarters are separate from the main living areas.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from the biography Philip Cox: Portrait of an Australian Architect by Jennifer Towndrow (Ringwood, Vic: Penguin Viking, 1991), p. 7, which states his full name and date of birth, adding that "Spring had come early that year and the bushfires were bad. The Bel Air Nursing Home in Chatswood, Sydney, was surrounded by a haze of smoke. Smoke drifted over the drowsy suburbs of the North Shore that hot Sunday afternoon. Philip was Ron and May Cox's second child ..." His mother May is also quoted to suggest an early afternoon time of birth: "On Sunday I got lunch ready, and then I just knew I was going to have it [the baby]. He was nearly born in the taxi! [on the way to the nursing home]."
