This large family home was built on a small block on the coast line. It was designed to capture the beach-side views from all multi levels within the home to flow together seamlessly. A modern facade was called for with the incorporation of a raised pool. Due to the overall height of the building it was important to create a facade with depth and character. The double height alfresco area and cantilevered elements help soften the facade by providing articulation. The sleeping quarters are located on the upper floor which looks down over the main living areas. With a busy family lifestyle, this allows communication between both levels whist having a feeling of separation.
The client's of this stunning designed home were two brothers, who wanted their home to be designed with an 'entertainers' feel. In order to meet the design requirements, the house was designed with an open plan living integrating with the entertainment area. High ceilings, timber beam features, mixed textures and materials creates an appealing look that the clients were extremely happy with.
The living and entertaining area are centrally located in the home and are sheltered from the western afternoon sun. We have incorporated a corner stacker door adjoining the kitchen, dining and alfresco to maximize the ventilation and natural daylight for penetration to the core of the home, complemented by Breezeway louvres and raked ceilings.

Flood level constraints were used to advantage with a high clearance carports which double as covered outdoor areas. The blockwork subfloor walls extend up for the front columns and on the southern sides to give a subtle modern influence.
