Sydney Coast House

Desiring to create approachable, elegant architecture, Luke Moloney Architecture converted a single-storey cottage overlooking the ocean in Sydney, Australia, which received a new first floor to take advantage of spectacular coastal views.
In response to Luke’s approach, which aims to make sustainable, comfortable places, tailored to the people who live in them. An economical design tailors simple materials to make a comfortable, yet handsome home for a busy couple with young children. The pitched roof form in the living spaces on the upper floor creates a generously-proportioned series of rooms, addressing the ocean view.
A cut-out corner of the balcony serves to frame views south along the coastline, while offering privacy from the block of flats next door. Mirrors and skylights in the living rooms bring in northern sun and amplify views in a tight floor plate, increasing the sense of space. The form of the garage recalls seaside bathing pavilions.
