This project is another prime example of when the collaboration between client and architect can produce wondrous results.
Run down from years of being battered by the elements and a layout of disconnected spaces, this Watsons Bay house was in desperate need of a refurbishment.

The resultant design provides a raised entry with improved access to the upper living level. Spaces are enlarged and open with unhindered harbour views and a seamless connection to the exterior living areas.The middle bedroom level comprises four luxurious bedroom suites and a lower ground entertainment level with direct access to a magnificent pool in a lush tropical oasis.

All the rooms are finished with dramatic dark and blonde materials and an uncompromising attention to detail.
The completed house provides the inhabitants with a private resort-like lifestyle that caters for their individual needs.


“Anna’s grasp of what we wanted was immediate and we seemed to synchronise every step of the way during the design process – she understood exactly the level of subtle elegance we were after and she delivered”
