Beach House represents a refined home design realised by a bold expression of form derived from the plan functions and a palette of coastal materials.

From the west orientated urban streetscape, the façade responds to privacy and solar constraints by way of sliding timber screens set within white vertical walls, horizontal concrete floor and roof elements in a two-level form.

The two-level form boldly cantilevers towards the street over feature stone walls and glass entry. Dense landscaping softens the built form and provides a unique arrival experience.

Externally and internally the material palette is a composition of natural materials and textures including stone, concrete and timber set against white surfaces.  Internally, textural changes, high ceilings and voids capturing light creates a variety of revealing spaces.

The house sits effortlessly in the natural sand dune surrounds where inspiration for the home was born and realised.
