Tony Owen NDM complete their beach house in Bundeena 

This beach house by Tony Owen NDM is set in a pristine bushland setting in the Royal National Park, one hour south of Sydney. The site itself is just back from the beach and has stunning water views. Bundeena is a unique coastal town in that it maintains a remote ‘holiday feel’ but is on Sydney’s doorstep.

The house has a ‘cross-over’ design. The top floor, which contains the living areas, is oriented east/west and the lower level bedrooms run north/south. This allows the house to sit into the slope with minimal impact. The top floor maximises exposure to the northern sun whilst the lower level is directed toward the beach.

This design allows for a large north facing deck area in front of the living room which sits above the bedrooms. Thus simple sustainable principles result in a very sculptural form.

Because the houses are on steeply sloping blocks, the steel framed forms cantilever dramatically over the landscape and over each other and the interplay of the overlapping levels creates a strongly sculptural composition.
