Bayview St Lavender Bay

Architect – Tobias Partners

Nestled in Lavender Bay, this newly constructed home harmoniously embraces its surroundings, capitalizing on its prime location with expansive volumes that capture dynamic views of Sydney Harbour. Designed to accommodate a family of five and guests, the residence also features a dedicated home office on one level, complete with dual terraces that offer both expansive and introspective outlooks.

The steep site, dropping 16 meters from the street to the water’s edge, faces east, providing an enchanting panorama that encompasses Luna Park, the iconic Harbour Bridge, and the Sydney Opera House. To fulfill the clients’ vision and maintain view corridors for neighboring properties, a deep excavation was undertaken, showcasing a commitment to both functionality and thoughtful design.

From the street, the house presents itself as a single level, and the main entry sequence becomes a focal point, highlighting the north-western pylon of the Harbour Bridge. As you descend, a monumental in-situ concrete spine traverses the interior, connecting all five levels. Skylights strategically placed along this spine bring natural light deep into the heart of the building.

Bedrooms are thoughtfully organized along this central spine, while the open living spaces are strategically arranged across the lower levels. These spaces seamlessly extend outdoors to the garden, pool, and the edge of the harbor, creating a fluid connection with the surrounding environment. This Lavender Bay home not only captures the essence of its spectacular location but also showcases a design that prioritizes both aesthetic and functional considerations.
