The challenges of an extremely awkward site were all overcome to result in this spectacular modern beach home. Urbane Projects designed a three-level home with a basement level encompassing a garage, a home cinema and a wine cellar. The clients work from home and to the entry level a light-filled home office was cleverly design to give privacy yet still capture the ocean views. Upstairs the family love to come together in the open-plan living with balcony, where they entertain to a backdrop of sunsets and ocean views. Bamboo floors, white walls and a contemporary white stone kitchen create a look that is light, open and inviting. The elevation continues the warm palette, linking the home to its coastal location.
The clients loved the travertine blade wall that flows from the inside-out to both levels of the home. “This feature has received lots of compliments, and other houses in our area have since copied this look,” they said. The clients enjoyed the build process. “We were looking for someone who would work with us on our home build, with a degree of flexibility in the design process,” they said. “We had a great relationship with Steve and it was very much a collaborative process during the design and building stage. He was very open to ideas and flexible in his approach.”
