Key Design Features: Fringed in Pohutukawa and located on an isthmus, the dual aspect of this dune front retreat allows the upper level of this beach house to capture panoramic views to the harbour and offshore islands. To accentuate the panorama, the beach front facades are oblique, extended and topped with a floating wedge-like roof above slender clerestory windows. At night the floating roof is uplit, creating even more drama.
Key Building Features: The building is framed in precast concrete, clad in timber, and has clerestorey glazing and a sculptural roof to capture the afternoon sun.
Status: Under construction.
