Sites in Sydney don’t come much more spectacular than that of the ‘Tama Beach House’.
The existing three-storey house has breathtaking panoramic coastal views and virtually ‘sits’ on top of Mackenzie’s Bay. Initial design ideas have explored ‘subtracting’ large parts of the existing house to allow abundant amounts of natural light into living spaces with the subsequent reduction in building footprint vastly improving the size and quality of the outdoor areas.
It is proposed that the current pool will receive a face-lift in keeping with the new proposal, including a glass fence, which should allow views down the coast from the waters edge. Prefabricated or panelized construction techniques are also being considered, as the site currently has no vehicular access. These build options will aim to minimise site wastage and speed up construction times.
Views are framed from all living spaces, and a sinuous sculptural stair will link all three floors and allow natural light into the heart of the home.
