    Testament to time-honoured design, this Palm Beach family retreat showcases sensuous shapes and a nuanced palette to create a sense of calm.

    It’s no secret that Palm Beach, nestled at the northernmost point of Sydney, is widely admired as one of Australia’s most spectacular and secluded white-sand beaches. It’s here, on a tree-lined hillside, that tranquil Woorak House by Sydney based practice CM Studio sits.

    Built as a young family’s holiday retreat, Woorak House fuses coastal design with a global focus, based around a series of lofty pavilions and open courtyards which lead to a design akin to a Mediterranean Summer home. The client’s brief called for a casual, family-friendly home that was timeless in design,” Megan Burns, Principal of CM Studio says.

    The garage, bedrooms and private pavilion inform one zone while the main living, kitchen and dining pavilion create a public pavilion to the rear. This clever zoning ensures maximum privacy while also allowing “Various spaces to expand and compress both horizontally and vertically, creating joyful moments for the young family as they go about their everyday life,” Megan says.

    “The Marrakesh render was another unique perspective. We had a clear vision of how we wanted the curves and finish to look to give a casual undulation that was soft to touch.”

    The Kelly Wearstler Melange Large Elongated Sconce and handmade sink by Hobart-based ceramicist Lindsey Wherrett make a statement in the light-filled bathroom.

    Thoughtful planning ensures spaces embody a spacious and airy quality with undulating, sculptural elements that speak to the coastal locale, while carefully considered outlooks draw in the neighbouring tree canopy.

    Generously designed and impeccably finished, Woorak House balances opposing elements including the masculine with the feminine, strength with softness and curves with clean lines.
