• The project conceived for a gently sloping site with terrific sea views and wind exposure

• Desirable and uninterrupted eastern rear views into natural bushland

• Undesirable views of existing development to the north and north east

• Brief for a 4 bedroom family home, young parents

• An earthy structure meets the entry, a timber cube forming the street entry. Access to the dwelling via a rammed earth spine wall leads to a first floor living space and connection with the view

• From here the architecture is a steel and compressed sheet framed structure, weather protective and akin to the beach boxes which dot the nearby coastline

• A painted compressed sheet balcony screen provides a filtered light into the dwelling while restricting views into the undesirable views – the existing residential subdivision below the site

• Protected outdoor areas
