2099 Dee Why

Headland House

This newly built home was a fresh beginning for an active family and their dogs. The brief was to create a breezy sanctuary of comfort and rich textures, while connecting the space with the natural beauty of the landscape.

In selecting materials, we sought to include texture and vital colours that would enrich, not overwhelm the spaces and employed durable materials that would withstand day-to-day use.

Durable natural stones, Macaubus and Taj quartzites were central to the design and are used throughout the home to create a sense of sophistication, tactility and unity. 

A collection of hand-carved timber furniture pieces from local artisan James Mayde were placed throughout the house, providing sculptural character and interest. 

A bespoke Moroccan Berber rug, grounds the living space complimented by a Mina Staples Interiors Aya swivel chair.  A hand blown amber glass side table and delicate decorative lighting were utilised to offset the clean, modern lines of the open plan living area.

Headland House was designed by Sean Gartner of Gartner Trovato Architects and expertly built by Parkdev.
