Pool to Harbour House – Gura Street, Kiama

The Pool to harbour house is luxury residence overlooking Kiama Harbour at the front and pool to the rear.

The Design captures the amazing harbour views and links the backyard pool and BBQ space flowing through the main open plan living area and out to the harbour. Spatial flow, light, ventilation, storage, and practicality were key considerations form the client. 

The deign spans over 3 levels with garage and storage on the ground, living kitchen dining and three bedrooms on the second and master suite on the top level overlooking the harbour. 

Key features of the design are the: 

  • Focus on the Kiama harbour and ocean views
  • Double height ceilings over the living
  • Personality filled and well-tailored large kitchen
  • Pool to the rear with pool glass wall adding a massive visual asset at eyeline back to the living spaces at proximity. 

The house expresses elevating and breathtaking proportions and is a intelligent response to the surrounding Kiama harbour environment.   

What the client says: ‘Having been fortunate in securing one of those rarely offered properties overlooking Kiama Harbour, we really wanted to create something special that would do justice to the location. What we ended up with in working with Colin Irwin and the i-architecture team is a standout, warm, contemporary, and light filled multi generational family home that has surpassed anything we could have envisioned. Our experience with Colin’s vision and creativity in design has been outstanding, as has been his patience and commitment throughout in helping us manage through a complicated set of neighbour objections, council public access meetings, and political processes that we’ve now learnt are part and parcel of any development in a sensitive location. We’ve now been living in the new home for over 14 months and feel absolutely blessed with what’s been created working together with i-architecture. More than happy to recommend i-architecture, and also to speak with anyone who is considering working with them and would like to explore any further information in more detail.’ Paul Brady
