Location: Tamarama NSW
The brief for this new, multi-unit residential development was for an iconic piece of coastal architecture that references its dramatic location. The south-facing cliff-top site straddles a scenic coastal walk, offering panoramic ocean views. The key challenge to this brief was how to capitalise on the views to the south and capture sunlight from the north.
The development comprises of five luxury apartments each offering three bedrooms and three bathrooms, privacy was of key importance. The layout allows the drama of the site to unfold gradually as you navigate through the spaces. From the street, the apartments appear sculpted from the rock ledges they rest on. Elegantly proportioned in off-form concrete and weathered timber, this is a low-maintenance building, designed to withstand the elements and age gracefully.
