The site is located on a cliff-top facing NorthEast and overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

We were asked to design a house in which an entire family, complete with respective spouses, children and friends could come together and relax. This required finding a solution that met individual privacy and communal gathering needs for more people than the average household.

The house consists of two separate pavilions, united by a beautiful courtyard. By splitting the building into two separate masses, we were able to reduce the overall impact of the building on the site.

The main living pavilion can easily adapt to changing climatic and physical needs but remains unimposing and transparent. The combination of timber steel and glass, with limestone flooring both inside and out, has created a relaxed, versatile and very elegant beach house. This design takes full advantage of this unique location whilst providing a level of comfort and luxury that makes entertaining a joy.

About the

Utz Sanby Architects is an award-winning practice focused on delivering high-quality residential projects. Established in 1994 we have a reputation for delivering great design, service and buildings. We are passionate about design that enhances the lives of our clients, resulting in a positive change to how they live.

We provide a full architectural service for the duration of a project, from initial concept to completion, covering the following progressive stages:

  • Initial sketch designs
  • Submitting a Development Application (DA) to the Council
  • Design development
  • Preparing contract documentation

Because the design and construction process can be daunting, we endeavour to communicate, educate and assist clients throughout the process, so that the experience of the design and build is both rewarding and satisfying.

Additional services that we provide include:

  • Pre-purchase site visits – for advice regarding the development potential of a site, in order to help make an informed decision prior to purchasing.
  • Feasibility studies – including analysis of brief and budget; assessment of council constraints; preliminary opinion of probable cost, which may include initial conceptual design.
  • Interiors and furniture selection – our full architectural service includes a selection of internal finishes, colours, tiles, lighting, sanitary and tapware and door hardware. We can also advise on the selection of furniture, fabrics, blinds and lighting.
