Cantilevered Seaside House on the Australian Coast

Holman House1 architecture

Here’s a house that practically sings of the pure blue joy of the endless ocean horizon.

Holman House5 architecture

Created by Sydney architects Durbach Block Jaggers, the house clutches 70 meter cliffs overlooking Australia’s lonely Pacific.

Its concave curves end in glassed-in cubes cantilevered out over the sea.

I love the audacity of these two rectangles of empty sky framed by the white walls comprising its cantilevered kitchen and living room.

The kitchen follows the gentle curve of the exterior.

Its concave shape appears to embrace the vast horizon.

Only a few cliffside branches interrupt the expanse of glass and the expansive void of the sea.

Fresh, glowing, semi-opaque turquoise glass in the bathroom continue the relentless assault of the vastness of the surrounding ocean.

By contrast, the living room offers the dry textures and the warm golden glow of a sandy beach by the sea.

The dining room chairs seem like honed golden shells on a rocky cliff on the beach.

Similarly, in an open terrace ground floor “cave” the warmth of sand and stone predominate.

Stairs lead down from this “cave” opening to a small pool nestling into the side of the cliff.

The house is partly dug into the cliff, and partly supported on poles that angle outwards holding up the cantilevered kitchen and living room.

The various curved forms of the house, and the support of the four angled stilts were inspired by Picasso’s The Bather.
