Anglesea House



Architecture is often about achieving balance between seemingly incompatible elements.  At Anglesea these elements are intimacy, and generosity of space.  How do you create spaces to both accommodate a large extended family, and at once provide private niches necessary for quiet retreat.

In our design for the Anglesea Beach House, we addressed this by introducing a long, continuous roofline, high over the living areas and sloping down over the smaller bedroom spaces.  Above the kitchen, clerestory windows flood the open room with morning sunlight, and a continuous glass wall opens out to a covered northern terrace.  Bedrooms also open out to the terrace, with views of the expansive garden beyond.  A strong connection with the outside is essential to the design, with the terrace used as the primary gathering space.  Bathed in natural light and embraced by a beautiful native garden, it is this space that binds the architecture and ultimately brings the family together.
