2015 AIA Regional Awards HOUSE OF THE YEAR

This understated elevated residence blends well with its sub-tropical coastal landscape. It exhibits architectural and structural resolution in an innovative way, within a clear functional planning framework. The design management process with this project was well conveyed, and a cost effective exemplar for this constrained site was achieved. The realisation of Stage 2 with its’ informed site planning, will contribute well to this evolving coastal community.

The particular site located near the ocean in the New South Wales region of Australia provided for certain characteristics that shaped a large part of the design of the northern rivers beach house. the home, designed by local studio refresh design, utilizes a mixture of sustainable materials and conscious design to achieve an efficient and comfortable open-plan structure. due to the great possibility for flooding, the house is elevated upon a central foundation and cantilevers at each end floating the spaces over the landscape.

La premisa inicial para el diseño era hacer una reinterpretación de ”la casa de la playa” al integrar materiales estándar como la plancha de metal ondulada, planchas de fibra de cemento y elementos de madera, a una forma dinámica y contemporánea.
