The project conceived for a gently sloping site with terrific sea views and wind exposure. Desirable and uninterrupted eastern rear views into natural bushland. Undesirable views of existing development to the north and north east. Brief for a 4 bedroom family home, young parents.
An earthy structure meets the entry, a timber cube forming the street entry. Access to the dwelling via a rammed earth spine wall leads to a first floor living space and connection with the view. From here the architecture is a steel and compressed sheet framed structure, weather protective and akin to the beach boxes which dot the nearby coastline. A painted compressed sheet balcony screen provides a filtered light into the dwelling while restricting views into the undesirable views – the existing residential subdivision below the site. Protected outdoor areas.
