Manly Street Beach House

This is a Beach House for a family of five. It was intended that the house creates a story of passage, from suburbia to the beach and the horizon beyond. From the Street, the house appears as a slightly adhoc arrangement of separated forms, with hardiflex boxes anchored to the ground and lighter forms floating around the side, leading through to the beach.

The living area is a raised pavillion from which to enjoy the hot summers and views of the sea. Metaphors related to the location are threaded through the design, some are literal and some very abstract. These are present as you pass through or stay in the house, adding a resonance that is not necessarily fully discovered. The house is close to the beach and exposed to the prevailing north-westerly winds. A pallete of non-corrosive materials have been used and are designed to weather.
