Single Level 60’s Sydney Home Gets a Beachy Modern Upgrade

Creating a dynamic and cheerful new interior that completely altered the vibe of this 1960’s single level beachside residence in Clovelly, Sydney, the creative folk at Look Interior Design managed to balance privacy with unabated ocean views. The old residence was not just poorly planned, but was turned into a dark and cluttered space as subsequent renovations brought in greater number of internal partitions. Completely altering the floor plan of the lower level and adding an addition top floor along with an expansive wooden deck outside, the charming makeover aims to bring modernity to the classic Aussie home.

1960s Single level home with a contemporary renovation and addition

The transformation started with the revamping of the lower level to house an open plan living with a neutral color palette. With the clients wanting a relaxing, beachside vibe inside the home, white, pops of blue and subtle coastal style accessories were carefully chosen to achieve the desired look. It is the new top level that now holds three comfortable bedrooms with an ocean view along with bathrooms and other private areas. A front and rear balcony on this level allow the homeowners to take in the beautiful scenery outside.
