The design of this beach house at Fingal Bay on the NSW mid-north coast, has been inspired by the Gymea Lilies that proliferate across the hill behind the site. Like the lilies, the house reaches up & outward to the light, & in this case, to the panoramic views of Fingal Bay. The stepped plan uses large cantilevers to maximise the footprint on the upper levels which the living spaces inhabit. Generous balconies cantilever off both the front & rear facades so that the owners can follow the sun & escape the onshore breeze when needed. Beautiful views can be enjoyed back up into the National Park whilst always remaining connected to a view of Fingal Bay.
