Clovelly is a private home designed by Rolf Ockert Design in Sydney, Australia

High elevation of the house

The owners have lived for several years in a rather dilapidated home that once stood on this spot. They were very familiar with the landscape, and this knowledge was very useful to the designers of the project. Of course, the most important goal was to ensure that the view of the ocean and the beach was breathtaking. The decision was made to make the southern and northern facades of the house almost entirely glazed.

Local climate influenced the choice of building and decorating materials. Above all, the building had to be resistant to the salty winds, which are quite intense in this part of the coast. The design had to fit in with the architectural character of the area and not conflict with the richness of the surroundings.

The designers allowed a neutral tone to dominate both the exterior and interior, leaving them to the power of sunlight, the best decorator of all time.
