bondi beach house

There are many projects such as this, where what would at first seem like an unfortunate space are turned into fabulous houses.   It is when the site and context give the greatest restrictions that often the best designs are developed as the architect is forced to solve the problems through concentrated discipline and creativity.  This house on a narrow 120 square meter site, has been resolved through repetition of line, shape, material and colour.  The narrow house is focused towards the great sea views, with courtyards and double volumes filling out the restricted widths.
