Elizabeth Beach, a small secluded beach on the mid North coast of NSW, Australia, is a small village with a mix of approximately half holiday houses and half permanent residences. The climate is temperate and the surroundings largely unspoiled. The site is located opposite a remnant littoral rainforest, situated midway between the estuary of Wallis Lake and the Pacific Ocean.

The dominant opportunity that the site presents is a long boundary that abuts a nature reserve, immediately to the East. To the West is a steep hill with established existing houses. The client’s requirements were that the house would suit a young, growing family, with allowance to accommodate extended family from interstate and overseas. The house should take advantage of the site’s attributes, and frame out the less desirable views.

The concept behind the building is for a grounded, timber element extending along the Western side of the block, thereby creating a screen for the rest of the site. More open spaces such as living areas and decks sit to the East of the timber element, with total privacy, direct outlook to the forest and good solar access.

The living spaces open to a sunny grassed area, a roofed deck and an open deck, so that through the year, different areas can be used depending upon the weather. The children’s rooms open into a playroom, creating and defining their own private area of the house. The upper level is the parent’s own zone, where considered openings frame views of the forest and garden. The home is designed to be sheltered from the undesirable weather from West and South, yet open to the North and East.
