A view of the yachts on the bay

Imagine having this outstanding view of Sydney harbour every morning? It must be very rugged! The owners asked Tanner Kibble Denton Architects to create a casual, beach-side vibe with an emphasis on natural light and, of course, the stunning views. They also wanted to retain the modesty and simplicity if the original cottage being replaced. A large skylight in the upper level running the length of the kitchen bench floods the kitchen with natural light that flows down the curved ceiling and onto the joinery below.

 

The interior palette celebrates the waterside location with laid back class, featuring a striking combination of white against natural timbers, with a slightly nautical vibe. American oak floorboards and oak veneer joinery are used extensively, including an oak veneer kitchen splashback protected by glass, which during the day reflects the moored yachts in the bay.


Construction materials:
masonry, concrete, stone, western red cedar and glass.

 

Sustainable features: water collection, storage and re-use, passive design including appropriate orientation, shading, ventilation and position of thermal mass.
