Tamarama, NSW, Australia
The Tamarama House by Porebski Architects is a residential project located in one of Sydney’s most exclusive beach side suburbs.
Located on a corner site on the hills overlooking Tamarama Beach the design allows the house to be a sculpture on the site. With stone forming the base a sculptured curved fa§ade creates the lighter upper levels. The building is beautifully modulated by the use of timber batten extensions forming bay windows against the curvaceous white render masonry which all sit wonderfully with the Will Dangar designed gardens.
Designed for a family of four the house is inverted from the traditional house with the main living areas positioned on the top floor to take advantage of the ocean views and allows these rooms to use the volume of the roof space creating strikingly formed ceilings.
The house is L-shaped in plan creating a central courtyard that flows around to the pool area to the rear. The courtyard acts as a private outdoor area which is purposely orientated to the sun yet protected from the sea breezes, which are a daily occurrence.
The upper living areas flow out onto the large covered terrace that take in the beach and ocean views as far as the eye can see. The front rooms flow freely to the rear family room creating the perfect family living arrangements or scene for cocktail parties.
With cavity sliding doors the rear lower play room flows out to the courtyard and pool garden with a seamless transition. A covered terrace contains a built in bbq.
The interiors have been styled and finished by Alexandra Donohoe from Decus to compliment the architecture.
The luxurious architecture designed by Porebski Architects ensures that the Tamarama House accentuates the immense natural beauty on display at this stunning beachside location.
