Sea Deck House

Sea Deck is a family home located on a view-abundant, beachside site. The design captures ocean views from each of its three levels it terraces down the slope. A robust and natural palette of materials feature timber cladding, in-situ concrete and timber detailing throughout create a relaxed yet sophisticated home.

The design brief was to create a sophisticated yet relaxed family home that capitalises on the site’s amazing setting. With a steeply sloping site and raking height limits, the floor plan is divided into 3 levels stepping down the site.

Each level serves a specific function; The upper level, is the master suite / parents retreat; The middle level is dedicated to family’s daily living; and the lower level serving as the children’s quarters and secondary living.

The design philosophy follows a modern aesthetic, but with the extensive use of timber to soften and warm the spaces. Generous eaves and balcony spaces respond to the environmental factors of the site as well as appeasing town planning requirements. High level ribbons of glazing give the appearance of floating roofs. A thoughtful approach to landscaping helps ground the proposal to its context with the extensive use of native species in the many terraces.

An important consideration on this site was the strong prevailing breezes from the south-east. The design seeks to create an opportunity to shelter from these breezes in the main living spaces which is crucial to the liveability of the house in this location.

What is the relationship of the built form to the context of the project?
Ocean views are captured from every level to the east and the site is flanked by national park to the west. A challenging slope and height limits led to a split level design over 3 levels. The house presents to the street with a heavily landscaped verge and entry gatehouse in oversized timber. A permeable timber battened garage door adds texture the streetscape. The rustic aesthetic in the extensive use of timber cladding, board finish insitu concrete and oxidised cladding respond to the raw beauty of the national park opposite.

How does the functional performance match the clients’ brief?
The client was very involved throughout the project and adjustments to an evolving brief were considered inevitable and welcomed. The result is a highly customised bespoke house that was crafted to match the clients brief exactly. Given the constraints of the site, the brief matches the clients expectations very closely, including aesthetics as well as function.
