Replacing a tired, run-down house on a beautiful lot, this impressive modern beach dwelling is the permanent home for a retired couple, but serves as a holiday home for their children and grandchildren. As such, the house had to be comfortable and cosy for two, but dynamic and large enough for visiting friends and family. Circular porthole windows are a recurrent theme in this now iconic design, creating snapshot views throughout the house.


Light tones and a generous
internal volume combine
within the open plan living
space of The Seaview,
crafting a bright and
pleasant atmosphere.

We engaged Chris and his team to draw up plans for us. We were thrilled with the outcome. We only made minor changes throughout the process. Chris’s attention to detail, interior and exterior, have made our home a delight in which to live. A wonderful result and a gorgeous home for us, family and friends to enjoy into the future.
