Lower Beach St
Bringing this unique home into a new era required a considered process that included the installation of a fully automated skylight to the roof structure of the upper floor, inviting in both light and ventilation. Also included was the installation of frameless glass systems aimed to capture the impressive view. These systems were glazed into off-form concrete walls that separate the internal space to the roof top gardens – aptly landscaped to suit the environment.
Delicate structural steel allows the building’s roof to float above the top floor, offering an expansive view above the mirror-like off-form concrete blades that divide the two floors of the building. Seamless mosaic tiling throughout bathrooms and flamed granite paving to external stairs work together to create an additional sense of attention to detail. Recognised for its technological and innovative approach, the house is currently being considered for a Master Builders Association 2014 "Excellence in Housing Award NSW 2014 " Alterations & Additions.
