The new home sits on the edge of a links style coastal golf course, tucked in behind a stand of Cypress trees. The neat rectilinear plan divides the site longitudinally into equal parts of house and garden. The house benefits greatly from the golf course outlook, but in its own way, it also contributes to the landscape experience from the golf course side as well.
The house is a single storey home of efficient proportions which favours simplicity over size. A single living/dining/kitchen space, two bedrooms, a sitting room and a double garage make up the main areas.
The tight planning carries on into the disciplined detailing of the spatial sequence. Restraint is evident in the neutral palette of materials: silver stained blackbutt timber, grey cement render, dark grey steel, oak floor boards and ceiling finishes are used throughout.
The newly planted landscape interface with both the course and the street express a sense of colour and confidence within which sits the delicacy of this house.
