Shoalwater Residence

With boundary lines on different angles and the natural ground line sloping up away from the road, ensuring that the spectacular ocean views were maximised and existing trees retained made for a challenging design.

A fantastic blend of earthy beach shack and modern contemporary that blends with the natural beach-scape but also stands out as a very unique dwelling.

Energy efficiency was achieved by positioning the home to make the most of the existing ground line, north facing side boundary and good cross-flow ventilation from the south west.

Masonry and light weight framework, high insulation, strong glazing and shading further enhance the home's energy efficiency.
