To facilitate a light and breezy indoor-outdoor feel, Brolga Developments & Construction worked closely with Joe Chindarsi Architects to shield the entertaining zones from the coastal winds.
The L-shaped structure combines the typologies of a courtyard and terrace, and
is sensitive to the site’s natural slope. This L-shaped theme is reflected at the front of the home, with a series of windows that forms an intriguing profile.
A large timber door provides contrast against the robust grey materials that dominate the frontage, and that continue in the large open-plan galley kitchen.
The clients requested good flow between these spaces, with gallery-style walls to display their collection of artworks. Minimal bedrooms were also on their wish list, with the option to sub-divide larger bedrooms at a later date for flexibility of a resale.
The upper level of the home floats effortlessly above the terraced garden and pool, and is completed with tempered openings for protection from the western sun. The result is a very liveable and relaxed beach home that is a perfect marriage of both form and function, responding appropriately to the site and climate.
Brolga Developments & Construction’s ambition is simple – to provide 100 per cent client satisfaction. For the last 15 years, the company has built 200 homes, and received more than 30 HIA and MBA awards. In addition to construction, Brolga’s in-house designers can create bespoke, fully integrated designs, or work closely with an architect of your choosing.
