Two iron cylinders rolling down the cliff top with linking ramps; a dramatic form overlooking an iconic beach of pounding surf.
Each cylinder houses two levels. Garaging and entry are at the higher road level with four bedrooms with ensuites under. The seafront pavilion, half a level below the entry, has a spacious upper living area level with the master bedroom and study below.
The glass enclosed ramps link the pavilions with courtyards on each side. These separated pavilions allow winter sun to penetrate through the courtyards to the north facing windows of the main living areas, as well as allowing cross ventilation to provide summer cooling.
The exterior of curved corrugated iron presents as a soft casual form reflecting the ocean waves and dunes, appropriate to a holiday house in a unique coastal location. Unpainted fibre cement cladding and bleached timber battens reflect a traditional beach shack aesthetic reinterpreted in a vibrant modern form.
The ceilings of corrugated iron follow the curves of the roofs and the casual atmosphere is reinforced by rough timber flooring, raw concrete bench tops, timber cabinetwork and stone tiling to wet areas.
