When Whiting Architects were first introduced to a family’s beach house on St. Andrew’s coastline, it was a compilation of disjointed, make-do renovations. The interiors were characterised by cold, uninviting spaces and didn’t consider the dramatic changes in climate.
Together with Bartlett Constructions, Whiting Architects reinvigorated the beachfront home and its surrounding areas, with the vision to create a down-to-earth, cohesive and hard-working family abode.
Across all three levels, they set out to balance separation and connection, hard-wearing materials and quality design objects. By creating a series of precincts, this beach house is cosy and comfortable for two, but able to accommodate extended family and hordes of children – all year round.
