The design of this shore-line house is crisp and modern, providing a functional but warm multi-generational home, that sits comfortably nestled between the surrounding older buildings. It is orientated and formed to frame its incredible sea views, whilst providing as much privacy as possible from adjacent houses and acoustic protection from passing traffic. It mirrors the surrounding buildings by its scale, mass and materiality, yet the design is of a very individual architectural character.
This home was designed to achieve better standards of insulation and airtightness than industry standards, so as to operate with a high level of fuel efficiency. This was partially achieved by the size and orientation of the openings, using high thermal mass and solar gain to advantage.
Planning Approval was granted in February 2013 and the scheme was completed in 2014.
