'Cliff House'

Built on the clifftop at Sorrento, this 1960’s home originally by McGlashan Everist Architects was due to be brought into modern times.

The clients had held back on altering anything at the house for a decade, as they wanted to ensure they made the right decisions on the brief and that any renovation was undertaken sensitively. The brief; to preserve and enhance the original design, while upgrading the building to include more ‘mod cons’ and technology, would allow the clients to spend more time there.

Some alterations to the original floor plan were made to ensure their multi-generational family could all use the spaces in a comfortable manner. Whilst the original modernist style and unique design elements were retained and built on.
