She-Oak-04Aptly named by its Architect as the "beach shack", this 3875.01 ft2 black box sits within the Casuarina estate on a beach front lot.

The original brief was to develop a house that was informal, casual, comfortable and welcoming and importantly have a space for the client’s quiver of long boards. Surrounded by an eclectic array of houses it became apparent early in the design stage the importance of the surrounds, the environment and the conditions that the house would be subjected to such as wind, salt and sun.

The use of galvanised steel and stained ecoply promotes rawness to the skin that will age gracefully rather than deteriorate like most paint type finishes, whilst on the inside the material palette is refined yet hard wearing in the form of polished concrete.


From the initial sighting of the house the viewer can make a casual journey to the double height entry with grass underfoot and natural landscape.

The concept for the house is a charred box that protrudes horizontally like fallen lumber, complemented by sandstone rockwork and steel supports. Its concrete pool also reflects the charred timber theme in its internal finish.
base-stonehawk-05The cladding and structure employ the organic and raw materials in the natural surroundings: rough-sawn stained plywood, galvanized steel, and combinations of horizontal and vertical sections mimic the forms of the trees.

Base_Architecture_Munro_05The proportions of this house have been dictated by the restraints of the site. A flood level two meters above natural ground and the 405m2 area of the site meant that this home had to be developed across three levels. Living occurs on the mid level and opens to both a rear deck and central courtyard deck to provide a connection to the outdoors where close proximity to the landscaped yard was not possible.
