The use of Spotted Gum timber cladding and battens, as well as feature concrete charcoal block walls reflect the colours, textures and tones of the surrounding coastal environment.
A stunning waterfront parcel of land provided the setting for this contemporary home. So as not to dominate the beach front setting whilst also complying with strict municipal requirements, this home is primarily single storey with a sub floor garage. The home offers simplicity of form to enable the environment to dominate.

The home offers simplicity of form to enable the environment to dominate whilst the robust material palette was selected for both its aesthetic qualities and also for its ability to withstand the often extreme weather conditions of this unique waterfront site.
Internally, there is a seamless flow between spaces where oversized feature sliding doors can be retracted to enhance the feeling of spaciousness and to provide a connection between the different zones of the home. Polished concrete floors, a crisp white colour scheme and timber joinery features throughout the home create a relaxed and calming interior, perfect for contemporary seaside living.
Externally, the Spotted Gum timber cladding and vertical batten detail is a key feature of the design, integrating additional detail to the simple exterior form and displaying a material palette with natural qualities, suited to the surrounding environment.
To the exterior, carefully located courtyard spaces also provide additional living areas which are somewhat protected from the elements whilst providing glimpses through the home and to the ocean beyond.
