The Top 100 homes in the country achieve Gold Reserve status each year, and proceed to the National Finals.
These are given to entrants who achieve 90% of the available points and judged to be at least 80% above industry standard.
With its strong connection to the environment, this is a house of context. The playful interaction between inside and outside, public and private areas, makes this seaside home a pleasure to live in. At 300sqm, this is a generous home that connects to the water at every opportunity. Four well-appointed bedrooms, three bathrooms and two living areas are placed across the spacious rectangular plan.
The shifting tide and constant activity on the water bring movement to engage with. Interior and exterior are connected by materials and extensive glazing. Stone is one of the most striking materials, and can be seen on the walls and indoor and outdoor fireplaces, giving this bespoke home a distinctive appearance.
The layout uses the location to access the best of natural light and sea breeze, while protecting residents from the elements. The clients have always loved the light from the south, while the design still allows for light and warmth to enter from the north. Two outdoor areas provide options, should the wind pick up.
