Mackeral Beach House

Location: Mackeral Beach, Pittwater
Completed: 1984
Building Type: Residential

A holiday house for an artist. Wrapped around an iconic jacaranda tree, Mackerel Beach house is a modern variation of the classic courtyard house.  The site is only accessible by water so modular construction methods were employed to minimise materials and the buildings impact on the landscape.
