Our clients sought to replace their existing outlived dwelling with a new home which had a sense of naturalness within the beachfront location. A home that would celebrate the functional layout of the old with the considered approach to new.
The design seeks to maximise the attributes of this outstanding site by placing the living on the upper level and glazing along the front to allow views over the dunes to the ocean horizon. Ground floor kids living, and bedrooms open out to the pool area below elevated living decks.
Composed of a series of symmetrical boxes with a centrally pitched and cantilevered roof projecting to the horizon. Clad in two contrasting cedar weatherboard profiles that will weather in the manner of driftwood.
An arboretum collection of woods throughout including exterior cedars, hardwoods, plywood and oaks threaded throughout the design.
Just simply, Beachfront Goodness.

"We found Jason to be positive and professional with great design ideas.
From the beginning he actually listened, returned our calls and nothing was too much trouble.
He worked closely with the Builder and the Engineer to iron out any issues.
The project came in on budget and he was very aware of time frames and the flow on effect these can have.
He has good relationships with Council which is critical.
If you are looking for an Architect who is organised, friendly and loves
what he does, Jason is the one!"
