Coastal - Honeycomb House
This house of many similar sized grid-like rooms coated with an outside golden honey palette of khaki cement render, stained cedar windows and natural stained oversized timber columns was naturally coined the Honeycomb house. The house although in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, could easily be as happy in the Hills of Tuscany, Italy.
This brick and oversized timber verandah three level additions has made the most of what is available on a small site. Avoiding the obvious front entrance, the entrance to the upper level is a journey through a detailed mosaic path leading through a covered grape vine clad pergola tunnel up to the upper entry porch to the side before revealing once inside to the wonderful district views.
This house design demonstrates the opportunities available on narrow block whilst responding to the sites wonderful north aspect and steep sloping site.
