House / Byron Bay

Located near the top of one of Australia’s best known beaches remarkable for landscape and beautiful beaches, this house still provides a sense of isolation and protection due to its placement and design. The design of the house is divided into two levels of use – ground floor for entry, living and dining with open kitchen, while the upper level contains bedrooms and associated bathrooms. Planned on a simple form of two open sided boxes sitting at 90 degrees and stacked on each other. A predominate use of glazing, is provided with shading via the upper structure, timber awnings and vertical blades on the upper level. The solid containment of the entry accentuates the view of the Pacific Ocean upon entering.

Project designed at Mackay and Partners.
