Seaview Beach House is a contemporary beachfront home designed by Mackenzie Pronk Architects, located in Curl Curl, a suburb of northern Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Rising above its sandstone topography, all spaces throughout the home are comprised of elemental volumes with an overhanging roofline and projecting windows with sensational views projecting out to the sea. The home offers a range of passive and active sustainable features and a rugged landscape comprised of coastal plantings. The driveway is comprised of recycled timber sleepers and small pebbles, which is not only attractive but very durable. The garage door has been concealed with eye-catching hardwood cladding, an inviting waypoint to greet visitors to the home.
The balconies extending off the house offer sliding hardwood screens. The bedroom wing is defined by black stained plywood cladding. Garden walls are formed of dry sandstone that were recycled from old footings original to the site. They step down with the natural fall of the property line.
