HOUSE 8

CITY BEACH

Like many Perth suburbs, City Beach has it’s own unique character; situated on the edge of the Indian Ocean, the suburb has (by Perth standards) undulating streets with large housing blocks generated by low density zoning.

The housing stock is an eclectic mix of 1960’s houses built at the time of the original subdivision and newer “McMansions’ which are slowly replacing the original 1960’s houses.

The beauty of the site is that it commands long views to the ocean to the west and north-west and over a leafy valley to the north east. The brief was for a contemporary home that maximized the site while not being ostentatious from the street. The house was to reflect our unique climate and outdoor lifestyle. As many rooms as possible were to have ocean views.
