Located on a steeply sloping site with frontage to the Balnarring Beach this house was designed to house the extended family and accommodate guests. It is set over three levels with a main stair interconnecting all levels and half levels. Entry and arrival is placed at the upper level at the end of a steep driveway. Guest facilities are also set on this level.
The building adopts a low profile from the approach side thereby maintaining view lines to surrounding neighbours. The middle level contains main living, kitchen/dining, and master bedroom and study. The lower level accommodates a second split level family living zone, additional bedrooms and bathroom and external terrace with swimming pool. Beyond the swimming pool and further down the slope is a remote studio complete with bathroom and modest kitchen amenity.
The key to this project is accommodating a reasonably large building on an extremely difficult site whilst creating a high quality landscape setting, comfortable for the occupants and complementary to the public beach setting.
