This new house in a dense, beachside suburb required clever management of privacy and views. The Coogee Beachside house, for a young family, was to be robust, liveable and light filled but with a layering of spaces that provided flexibility, separation and privacy.

Internal courtyards, operable perforated screens, lofty spaces and muted materials were used to create a sense of openness and lightness on the long, narrow, steep and heavily overlooked site. In keeping with the brief for robustness, the house is simple and bold, with architectural features capable of withstanding some imperfections, purposefully rough-laid brickwork and stone.
