Clifton House

Replacing an existing bungalow on a suburban block in North Bondi, this new, four-bedroom family house is located on the sandy flat that runs from the beach through to Sydney Harbour at Rose Bay. The surroundings are relatively dense for suburban Sydney with the site sharing boundaries with a mix of housing types, posing a significant challenge in terms of privacy. The house is carefully planned around a series of courtyards with dense planting to help filter these neighbouring conditions. The ground floor living rooms open-up onto several distinct garden spaces that bring light and ventilation deep into the plan while the upper level relies on the use of fiberglass screens to ensure privacy to the bedrooms. Behind these screens, gardens provide a softness to this strategy and the overall materiality of the house that references the red brick houses and apartment buildings common to the suburb.
