Sydney Beach House


Sloping sites are common along the coastal areas of NSW and Sydney’s northern beaches. This design allowed for a two pavilion design, where the first volume of the house is separated from the second volume via a courtyard garden and bridge like walkway. This distinguishes living spaces and sleeping spaces and works with the site topography.

The design allows for the maximisation of views as facades are opened up with glazing. Timber screening devices also enable the facade to be entirely shaded in extreme hot weather. The design allows for five bedrooms, bathrooms and a retreat in the first pavilion and a generous living/ dining/ and kitchen areas, and lower level gym and home cinema to the main pavilion. The alfresco balcony wraps around the first floor and an infinity pool flanks the lower level entertainment areas.
