Gordon's Bay House

NSW

 

This 6 bedroom home on the foreshore in Gordon's Bay, Coogee was built for a young family. 

It incorporates a north facing courtyard to bring light and air into the centre of the steep, east facing site.

The entry offers a vista from Gordon Avenue through the three storey stair void, across the 15m lap pool, and to the bay beyond.   

The main materials used are concrete and stained timber, for their honesty, durability and softness. 

Large, custom designed timber pivoting screens shroud the house and manage sunlight and privacy.

The exterior palette continues through the inside of the home to break down the delineation between inside and outside.
