This large family house is located in Pittwater facing the western foreshores National Park. The site is very steep to the water’s edge and heavily wooded in eucalyptus trees. A series of connected indoor and outdoor spaces provide protection from the extremes of exposure while enjoying access to all parts of the site.
Four pavilions are arranged around a large level north east facing courtyard and extensive gardens creating a usable sunny sheltered area which enjoys panoramic views from an elevated position. The pavilions are built of rustic granite, copper, teak and corten steel around a series of pools and ponds.
Guest rooms, cellar and garage are set into the hill to minimize the number of levels on a very steep site. Views amongst the tree tops are maximized by large projecting decks and terraces built into the hill side.
