Bilgola

The Serpentine Bilgola NSW

Bilgola Beach

The design and construction process commenced with the engagement of two of Sydney’s leading architectural firms to participate in a ‘design competition’ to most suitably address the site, the requirements of the clients brief and to create a spectacular landmark that has the potential to facilitate a responsive, intelligent and delightful architecture but more importantly a home that meets current and anticipates the future needs of the family.

CABE selected Turner + Associates, in conjunction with the client spent considerable time in close liaison with the local authorities, residents, consultants and industry professionals to satisfy the special requirements of the project and help secure authority approvals. Transfer of the vision to completed project was achieved with  coordination of consultants and leading industry experts, with a focus on the balance of pragmatics and imagination resulting in inherent flexibility allowing invention in form, detail and use of natural materials, that provide connectivity with the coastline.

The house is sited on the northern headland of Bilgola Beach, some twenty metres above sea level, near the edge of a beautifully rugged escarpment. A secretive entry point from the street allows only the garage and entry statement to be revealed. A deceiving journey unveiling features and spaces is undertaken down the staircase to the entry of the home.
