Two different architectural styles have come together with this project, and enhances the marriage between traditional and modern design.
From the front of the home Californian Bungalow, it’s a feeling of charm and tradition. Although once you step into the hallway, there’s a transition from charming to contemporary.
The owners have successfully created a stunningly modern white cube addition connected to the existing traditional bungalow by a glass, concrete and steel suspending bridge.
The interior architectural qualities include a double height void, sculptural steel stair, two-storey sandstone wall and model train room requested by the train engineer client.
This renovation is a celebration of tradition and contemporary design.
Beginning with a podium-like form, Shearwater House subtly peaks above the sand dunes and low-line shrubbery. To help soften the elevated silhouette, mirrored curves were introduced within the roof line and ground floor brickwork.
Upstairs, priority is given to the beach view, with expansive living areas and floor to ceiling windows to the north and east. Throughout the interior native timbers provide further context within the surrounding shack environment.

Custom designed kitchen layout and cabinetry to suit the family's lifestyle; with two young children and a passion for entertaining. An existing internal wall dividing the kitchen/ dining area was removed to increase the size of the kitchen, creating a practical and functional chef's kitchen and living space for the whole family. The new kitchen creates a feel of open plan living and connection with the outdoor areas and the addition of a full length window above the bench top maximises the natural light entering the house.
