The design of this idyllic home overlooking one of Australia’s best-known beaches allows multiple families to visit, while still having private areas. The building was positioned to maximise the site’s spectacular views in all directions.
The coastal home was carefully zoned over three levels. The top-level includes the main living areas, study and ample entertaining spaces which face both the surf to the northwest and a national park to the southeast.
With the site just metres from the beach, a simple palette of band sawn Silvertop Ash and zinc were selected to cope with the harsh environment and also patina over time.
These were carefully surveyed, slightly modified and successfully incorporated into the design. Other original stone walls were retained to provide an instant patina to the landscape. Even the existing pool was fully refurbished.
These include the location, block conditions, access and local council restrictions. Our team are happy to discuss how we can work with you to create an architecturally designed home.
