 New home in Bayview. 

What started out as "alterations and additions" became an opportunity to totally transform this dated Bayview property and build a grand, spacious home and do justice to its stunning location. The client had seen a Jansen project featured in Renovate & Extend, and wanted their new home to encompass similar subtle elements of other exotic cultures. The driver for the design was the magnificent park like gardens and stunning Pittwater views, so all major spaces and bedrooms had to be arranged to capture these views, and enjoyed in all seasons. The final design utilises natural materials of cedar, coconut palm posts on granite piers, a slate roof and muted bushland colours to recede the house into the landscape. A north facing covered terrace runs the full length of the house, capturing the beautiful Pittwater views and extending the living spaces outside whilst shading summer sun and rain. The main living area features a granite chimney and high open ceilings with exposed timber beams. Living areas are spacious but separate to enable different activities to continue simultaneously without interference and to be closed off when not in use. An elevator connects each level and will aid mobility enabling the owners to remain in the home for many years. A 100,000ltr tank farm occupies a cool space at the rear of the lower ground floor
