The Waterfront Retreat is the epitome of an Australian dream home, adorned with a private beach, garden and open-plan living.

Responding 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 & with the sites terrain.

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.

To fully experience the site’s glorious changing light throughout the day and seasons, large floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, floor-to-ceiling glazing, skylights and oversized cantilevered balconies are used to connect the owners with the surrounding outlook and nature.

Breaking down the building’s large 1600m2 footprint, interior spaces were programmed as inviting ‘pockets’ over four main levels, creating a sense of intimacy and warmth in even the largest open plan rooms.

The Waterfront Retreat is inspired by the hues and textures of the area’s sand, bush, water and sky, the design features creamy, light-grey in-situ concrete walls, bleached European Oak and limestone flooring, soft sandstone-coloured stack stone feature walls, and ‘invisible’ floor to ceiling Vitrocsa glass.
