This contemporary family home is positioned amongst subtropical gardens on the west facing, terraced site with sweeping views to Beauty Point.
Unlocking the potential of the site involved redesigning the kitchen and formal and informal living areas to create bright new open plan layouts, taking full advantage of the orientation to both the harbour to the front and the private outdoor living areas to the back.
The landscaping strategy centres on a spacious lawn surrounded by retaining walls with planter gardens and built-in seating, expanding the living space into the outdoors.
The new roof with deep projected eaves responds to the western orientation, ensuring glazing is protected and creates usable outdoor space with views towards Beauty Point. In addition to improving the children’s bedrooms, a large master suite was created to capture views from a large new external terrace.
