Designed by Tobias Partners the house was originally built in 1980s and was in urgent need of a fresh modern makeover. Despite the difficult access to the lot and the constraints placed by the existing form of the house the interiors were completely opened up to welcome in gentle ocean breeze and a flood of natural light.

A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use.

Modular seating coupled with comfy contemporary décor defines this area with a kitchen in black and yellow next to it. The top level holds the master bedroom along with an additional hall home office and other private spaces.
