Today we travel to the beautiful Australian city of Sydney, specifically to Narrabeen, a beachside suburb located between the ocean and a lagoon. Family homes in the area have been created in a historical context to the environment and usually have direct access to the freshwater lake. The villa we present to you today does have private access to the freshwater lake, however, it stands out from the traditional style of the neighbouring houses. The Narrabeen House plays with the dramatic contrast between the front and back views and highlights the contrasts between suburban life and pure nature.
