On a challenging site above a popular bay, this dynamic family home has superb views that survey the coastline and the regenerating native bush around it.
This three-level home has extensive wrap-around decking showcasing the views while also ensuring the owners have shelter whenever it’s needed. With a close connection to the outdoors, raw, natural materials are a key feature, form and materiality ensure that this home sits comfortably within the landscape.
A soaring roof follows the natural slope of the site and enables views of the bush clad hills behind. Oversized eaves will provide shade in the summer and allow the winter sun in. Warmth from winter sun will be stored in the thermal mass provided by exposed concrete floors and a concrete spine wall. High clerestory level louvres will allow sea breezes to provide cross ventilation.
Expert crafting of timber, the expression of structure, cladding, lining and joinery are on display in a raw and unique way. Expansive garaging completes this ultimate family getaway.
