Clovelly House

Alterations to a seaside bungalow in Sydney's eastern suburbs, in collaboration with Arent&Pyke.

This house is currently under construction.

Exterior

A single-storey cottage overlooking the ocean receives a new first floor to take advantage of spectacular coastal views. An economical design elegantly tailors simple materials to make a comfortable home for a busy professional couple with young children. A zig-zagged roof on the rear garage recalls the architecture of beachside bathing boxes - a playful nod to the seaside setting of the house.

Interior

The continuation of the pitched roof form into the living spaces on the upper floor creates a generously-proportioned series of rooms, addressing the ocean view. A cut-out corner of the balcony serves to frame views south along the coastline, while offering privacy from the block of flats next door.
