Sitting high above Saint Clair Beach is this architecturally designed home that deftly achieves two major objectives. The 310sqm four-bedroom residence was built to take in the stretch of beach and Pacific Ocean below, but it also had to sit beneath the view line of the existing property on the site. As a result, the dwelling, crafted in weatherboard atop concrete block, folds into the contours of its elevated section and sits discreetly in its landscape – not an easy feat given that there are four levels over which a complexity of living spaces are located. The owners were committed to sustainability, healthy living and energy efficiency for their new home, so photo-voltaic panels were installed to supply electricity, and solar panels to provide hot water. Polished concrete floors and exposed concrete walls maximise passive heat absorption and storage. Evidence of the craftsmanship is everywhere you look – in the beautiful herringbone tile kitchen splashback, timber-lined walls, three opulent tiled bathrooms, and the outdoor living spaces that link the indoors to the out.
