Nick Del Paggio of NDP Design was brought
on board to create a modern home,
which would cater to the future needs of
a growing family, offering both privacy and the
ability to entertain.
The challenge lay in the particularly steep slope
of the 750sqm triangular site. Building height and
overshadowing restrictions had to be tackled by
Nick, who had an aim to capture and maximise the
ocean views. To make the best use of the sloping
block, Nick leveraged the slope of the land to
design over four split levels.
The generous home includes four beds, three
bathrooms, a theatre/games room, wine cellar,
four-car garage, and a pool.
As with all Nick’s designs, good solar passive
design principles played a large factor in the form.
The double-storey roof over the outdoor alfresco
allows good sun and light penetration into the
living areas, especially during the winter months,
while maintaining good cover and protection
during the hotter months. High louvres to the
western side of the alfresco provide good sun and
breeze control, and the pool is also solar heated.
Carefully selected products and materials
include polished plaster, honed concrete and
aluminium electric louvres.
The beachside abode resolved as a stunning
example of coastal architecture, and as a
functional and eye-catching design achieved the
aims of both Nick and the owners.
This contemporary, modern home is focused on smart,
innovative design, incorporating the energy-efficient
principles for which NDP Design is renowned
