Larkin House

"Despite the restrictive parameters of the site and existing conditions, the house successfully captures ocean views, controlled northern and eastern sun, provides cross-ventilation and spatial drama though the interconnection of vertical and horizontal elements. The materials are low-key and robust yet refined, reinforcing the way of living and the family itself. Unlike many of its awkward new and old neighbours, the house reflects its context and the spirit of life in Coogee."
