Waterfront Retreat – Sydney

The Waterfront Retreat is worthy of house envy and beach house goals , adorned with a private beach, garden and open-plan living.
The house designed by Koichi Takada Architects responds the clients’ brief – a house offering sanctuary and entertainment, the Waterfront Retreat is designed to allow nature to lead, offering maximum seclusion and connection to its surrounds and outlook.
Located on a steeply sloping waterfront block, facing the vast expanse of Sydney’s Pittwater, a terraced, four level building progressively stepping towards the water. A series of floating platforms are presented as a sequence of cantilevered concrete slabs that float above a recessed stacked-stone podium. To maximise the sense of levitation, the slabs are tapered to a finer point toward the water, with the living and dining area designed to appear as a floating box.
An open-plan living area, features a showroom style kitchen and concealed preparation kitchen, perfect for entertaining. Informal spaces, including a home theatre, bar, gym and casual entertaining spaces, are positioned on the lowest floor as you move closer to the beach and relaxed waterside setting. Overlooking and offering access to the garden, private beach and Pittwater is the resort style infinity pool, with an adjacent sunken lounge and fire-pit. The Waterfront Retreat is inspired by the hues and textures of the area’s sand, bush, water and sky, which is evident though-out the design.
