The brief from our client was for a modern, open plan coastal home. What they had, initially, was a very small, two bedroom beach cottage in a great location. The completed renovation features two storeys of formal and informal living, four bedrooms and three bathrooms plus generous outdoor living areas. The materials used on this build give it a slightly retro beach feel while creating a thoroughly modern family home.
This extensive renovation involved making use of the sloping block. The original dwelling formed the basis of the lower level, with walls removed to make a generous living space opening off two bedrooms. The master suite and main living areas are upstairs, opening directly onto an entertaining terrace and inground pool. To the front of the home is a large alfresco deck.
