Panorama House

Panorama house is located on a small escarpment with spectacular views over Bronte Beach and north up the coast. The house responds with sculpted specificity to its dramatic site, rising confidently from its place, capturing the spectacular views from almost every room. Privacy is preserved and neighbouring views maintained with a carefully manipulated form. The entrance from the battle-axe block down a long driveway provides a compelling reveal. The interlinked spaces below a canopy roof provide an internal landscape. Craftsmanship and materiality are prioritised, manifesting skill and care.  Natural raw materials are used to define and express levels of enclosure. The built form dematerializes in the proximity of the cliff.
