Single-storey timber-framed beach house.
Our brief was to create a new-build single level family home located on a sloping beachfront site in Sydney's northern beaches. The design objectives were to maximise site coverage, and utilise orientation to create a range of internal and external amenity spaces for the varying weather extremes that the area endures.
The highly insulated structure, clad in western red cedar, also utilises a solar hot water system, photovoltaic energy production and rainwater collection and use, and can therefore operate as a fully self-sufficient home.
