case study

Kiama Residence

Gipps Street, Kiama, NSW

The historic cottage and outbuildings were purchased by our clients with the vision of creating a ‘beach house’ for the extended family to holiday throughout the year and gather over summer. The building is located on the old highway which wound its way through Kiama before the bypass and sits in a streetscape that is the first introduction to the township when entered from the north.
