This timber and glass pavilion is the second house in the development and continues the theme of coastal modernity. This home sits on a private site of a little over 3000 square metres. The architect designed the home to sit at the top of a gently sloped lawn facing north to catch the best winter sun. The landscape is build on sand-dunes and is dotted by native vegetation and tea-trees.
Following the principles of the InForm 'Retreat' design, but on a larger scale, the house's sharp lines are an interesting juxtaposition against the rugged coastal landscape. The design includes a double garage, four bedrooms and a lounge, as well as an open plan kitchen, meals and living space.
The characteristic long lineal roof plane of the 'Retreat' design caps the entire building, protecting the loggia and deck that extends the length of the northern exterior. A full height vertical timber screen protects the loggia from the biting west sun, and creates a dynamic and varied front façade.
Large full height black aluminium doors connect the living areas and master bedroom to the deck and sweeping lawn beyond. The black aluminium provides a striking contrast with the smoky grey oiled timber cladding and crisp white fascias.
White oiled oak floors add an appropriate contemporary but rustic sensibility to the interior palette, which also includes stainless steel and marble bench tops, oak joinery and a white mosaic tiled splash back.
