From the architect. Conceptual Framework

With an exposed site of sweeping views, the clients required a relaxed holiday home that maximizes views, but provided sheltered outdoor areas.

Built Form

The living area, with its dominant floating "lid" roof, emphasizes the drama of the exposed site. Two bedroom wings radiate from this core, and enclose a rear sheltered courtyard focusing on a wood fired pizza oven. Indented timber decks, either side of the living area, provide other options for sheltered outdoor living, with the choice dictated by wind direction.

The building is elevated a meter above the ground to maximize the view and reinforce the dramatic form.

Sustainability

Double glazing and high performance glass, cross ventilation and fans for cooling and a highly efficient combustion heater for heating, minimize energy use. Hot water is from an efficient electric heat pump.

Client needs

Clients report their enjoyment of the house, with the variety of outdoor living spaces encouraging a relaxed holiday lifestyle.
