Anticipating their future family, the clients required a master suite away from other bedrooms. We created a second storey oasis, that not only gives privacy but also takes advantage of views over the inlet and hills. As well as the large master bedroom, ensuite with elevated bath and double shower, generous walk in dressing room, there is also a nursery that could later become a private office.
On the main level, three additional bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry can be found, as well as an office space with a built-in cantilevered oak desk. Behind the triple garage, a large multi-purpose ‘studio’ has been created, the use of which will no doubt change with the client’s needs.
A modern family home designed to withstand the environmental elements.
Sitting in both a sea-spray corrosion and very high wind zone, sound proofing and material choice have been carefully selected. A dark plaster render finish forms the outer shell of the building, and was chosen for both its monolithic aesthetic and low maintenance requirements. A contrasting ‘inner’ layer of horizontal cedar weatherboards, add warmth, texture and intricacy to the overall form of the building.
This project was completed in November 2017.
