Lake View

With a breath taking vista the aim was simple, lose the houses structural bones to show off the impressive landscape beyond the walls.

A split level design allowing views over the internal space, rather than through, allowed for efficient use of the site.

Working from the rear access lane the home opens onto a wind protected, sun filled court area boasting fantastic views borrowed through the main dining / living spaces.

The 3 bedroom home on a tight site blend beautifully into its surrounds using natural timbers, stone and metals that will weather and stand the test of time in a harsh marine environment.

Clever use of space from a small study retreat to the cantilevered concrete hearth gives dual purpose to once often overlooked opportunities.

Light abounds through this high performance home that feels equally welcome for a weekend getaway or retreating to when the fishing has gone off!
