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 two story 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 line follows the natural slope of the land and enables views of the bush clad hills. Oversized eaves provide shade in the summer and allow the winter sun in. Warmth is stored in the exposed concrete floors and curving concrete spine wall. High clerestory louvres 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.
