03 Bilgola House

Australian Architecture

Bilgola House sits high above Bilgola Beach on Sydney’s Northern Peninsula, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Designed for a young family of four, the house is composed predominantly of concrete, glass and steel. The deliberately robust, sober and yet beautifully considered detailing is typical of the work of multi-award-winning architects Tzannes Associates. The house wraps around a courtyard, providing a protective enclosure from the street while maximising light and views. A central stair and void connect all the main areas and flood the home with northern sunlight, softly filtered through mature Norfolk Pine trees. An outdoor terrace extending from the living space, a landscaped courtyard accessed from the main bedroom and the lap pool combine with clean, minimal, elegant living spaces to create beautifully integrated internal and external architectural elements. Tzannes Associates received the Australian Institute of Architects’ highest award for outstanding residential architecture for Bilgola House in 2010.
