Waterfront Retreat House with Beautiful Nature by Koichi Takada Architects




Waterfront Retreat House designed by Koichi Takada Architects that gives a nod to tropical resort living by drawing inspiration from nature. By the talent and passion, the architects created a home that would respect the nature of the site while meeting the brief of a place that was reminiscent of a luxurious tropical resort.

This terraced, four level home locates on a steeply sloping waterfront block, facing the vast expanse of Pittwater. It allows to be constantly in touch with the beauty of nature. Hence, the eucalyptus aroma radiates, sound of waves travels and echoes throughout the rooms. As a result, nature is very much alive in the house. In addition, this home offers high end finishes with wonderful living room idea; dining room idea; kitchen idea; bedroom idea; bathroom idea. Indeed, it is the epitome of an Australian dream home with a private beach, garden, patiopool, open-plan living and luxurious interiors.

Drawing on the inspiration of travels to resorts in Mexico and the Maldives, a simple palette of natural materials including sandstone, marble, timber and concrete that complimented the surroundings throughout the interior and exterior of the home. Towering sandstone walls combined with the off-form concrete visually anchor the building to the waterfront site and reinforce the coastal aesthetic.
