Project summary

Evoking the ‘Kraken’ of Nordic mythology, a new dark and dynamic structure appears to overcome and engulf what was an existing non-contributory bayside building, raising its status and visibility within the streetscape and stepping up to meet with its neighbours on Beaconsfield Parade as an equal; rendering it effectively a new build.

Located less than 100m from the Middle Park beachfront, the new building form maximises the use and aspect of a small site, achieving views to both the city to the north and the bay to the south; engaging with and giving back to the streetscape.
Separate living spaces and accommodation on each level offer flexibility for an adult family and include an upper-level lap pool/spa and terrace. Richly finished interiors bring a level of sophisticated glamour reflective of its owner in the dynamic reimagining of their home of 20 years.

Victorian Jury Presentation

An entertainer’s dream, my new home is oriented perfectly to maximize light, minimise coastal weather impact and exploit the stunning bay and city views. Internally and externally, a brave and confident choice of form and material creates theatre, mood and drama with the natural light choreographed and filtered to offer a unique feeling in every room at every moment. George and Rosa have designed an aesthetically beautiful, functional home that is simply a joy to live in.
