About Us

The Seabreeze Story
The two men behind the rise of Seabreeze Kitchens and Bathrooms, Anders Lawaetz and Darrell Waters, come from vastly different backgrounds and it is their shared love of architecture, design and renovation that brought them together.

Anders originally trained as a carpenter in Denmark then moved into architectural design before settling on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

Darrell hails from Dorrigo in the northern tablelands of NSW but has lived on the Northern Beaches since 1970. He entered the kitchen design industry with a background in business management and a passion for renovation.

The pair first began working together under Seabreeze’s previous ownership, and after becoming close friends and knowing their individual strengths were complementary, they took over from the founder in 2006, becoming co-directors.

They have since expanded the modest showroom to include 10 display kitchens; bolstered their service to include bathrooms and custom joinery; become fully licensed so they can manage a project from start to finish, including all required trades; built a workshop to manufacture custom joinery behind the showroom; and updated their design software, so that it seamlessly integrates with the factory machinery.

For more than 20 years, Anders has been a leader in the kitchen design industry, in part due to his acute ability to balance contemporary design with his clients’ needs and expectations.

Darrell, in that time, has proven himself as an exceptional designer, managing the sophisticated drawing and business software systems that keep Seabreeze at the forefront of the industry.

Together, they have forged a wonderfully productive partnership, bringing a sophisticated and elegant approach to design and construction. 

The two men believe good kitchens and bathrooms are brought about through a combination of imagination, design and a sense of individuality.
