Curved walls and ceilings seamlessly draw you through the main bedroom and ensuite in this coastal property, enhancing the overall suite experience. 

Variations in flooring materials and shapes create the demarcation of the suite’s various functional spaces.

Adjacent to this, the timber-lined curved sauna sits right next to the shower enclosure. From both the shower and sauna, the owners can enjoy a distant view to the bay, while still having privacy from neighbouring properties.

What impressed the TIDA judges was how, despite the open plan design, a sense of privacy and enclosure was created for each activity without the need to physically close them off into separate rooms. 

Congratulations to Andrew Bartholomeusz of SAAJ Design, winner of the 2022 TIDA Australia Architect Suite of the Year.
