A couple in their 60s commissioned Tobias Partners to design a relaxing beach house where they could host their family and friends, as well as a place to display all of the treasures the well-traveled homeowners have picked up along the way. Set on the high tide line at Bondi Beach, Deepwater is a modern residence built with a durable outer shell for the brutal conditions.
Spanning five levels, all of which vary in height, the house has balconies on each of the floors that project out to maximize the water views. The layout also allows the house to be separated into two different apartments if they have guests in town.
The interior feels expansive as furnishings were kept to a minimum.
Throughout the house, paintings, sculptures, furniture, and heirlooms are thoughtfully displayed showing the family’s history and travel memories.
