Freshwater House sits at the northern end of Freshwater Beach looking south along the beach to Manly in the distance. The existing structure has been poorly renovated in the past. It is comprised of two apartments and is set to the west of a four storey apartment block. It is a unique shape with curved facades at both its southern and northern sides. The brief is to convert the building into one residence while creating protection from the southern aspect, increasing privacy from the neighbouring apartment block and maximising the view to the south and sunlight from the north. The design proposes an extension and rearrangement of internal space while enhancing the distinctive curved form of the building. This includes the addition of adjustable louvres to the curves which unify the front and rear of the building while providing privacy and sun control. The central section of the interior is proposed to be cut away to include a two storey space over the main living area allowing deep winter sun penetration into both levels of the the building. It also allows the view to be enjoyed from all areas including the rear protected northern courtyard.
