House at Cabbage Tree Point

On the fringe of the Royal National Park, this new house currently under construction is situated by a wooded outcrop overlooking Port Hacking River and Horderns Beach.

The one and two storey home is carved around two mature Angophora trees in the fore and an existing Cheese Tree that is centrally located to yield a large inner courtyard. This project benefits from a genuinely collaborative process with the owners, who are both architects, to develop a scheme that embodies both their spatial needs now and into the future.

The dynamic forms of this house is balanced with refined, deliberate detailing throughout and a coherent palette of raw materials that include fibre cement cladding, blockwork, polycarbonate cladding, and timber.
