Family Home: Collaroy – 2015


To design and construct a generously proportioned family home that met the young families current and future requirements. The home needed to take full advantage of distant water views, while overcoming the issues presented by a south/west facing rear yard.


Unique Aspects

The kitchen and main living areas are on the top level of the home, which can often lead to disconnection with the outdoors. However, this was overcome by incorporating a huge 8m x 4m balcony opening out from the living room. This provided that vital connection of seamlessly integrating the indoors with the outdoors. When paired with intelligent external screens, blinds and heating, this area has become a favourite in their home.



This was certainly a home that allowed us to provide a complete service, from concept to completion. Our clients had put together a complete scope of works for the project and then allowed us to design the home just right. All aspects of design, specification and construction were closely followed by the highly involved owners. The close working relationship, built through consistent communication, allowed a large number of personal and individual touches throughout the home. This input provides a lasting connection with the build and goes a long way towards turning a house into a great family home.
