It has been designed for a Sydney based couple who’s growing family come together often at the beach house. Therefore the home needed to be able to accommodate a swell of people at numerous times throughout the year. Our design response to this includes – Operable walls allowing spaces to grow and shrink as required, spaces that can spill outdoors and that connect from front to rear, materials that are hardy and easy to maintain and also smaller gestures in the home for quieter times, where a book can be enjoyed in the afternoon sun, out of the wind.

The Aussie coast can be harsh as well as stunningly beautiful – so the design of the home had to include a consideration for wind shelter, sun control, longevity of materials and sustainability initiatives as well as appreciation of the views to the surrounding natural landscape.
