Suburban Beach House by Ross Brewin & David Barr

A property for any youthful couple as well as their future family. The work is created of as a mix of the standard characteristics of the West-Australian beach shack and also the weather and bottom-utility advantages of a Queenslander.

A home is lofted over a natural limestone outcrop which turns into a shaded garden terrain underneath the belly of the house above. The program of the home is rationally split into day and evening zones using the separating corridor fattening at one finish to become study nook. West facing home windows are reduced to defend the home in the searing mid-day sun. This ‘blankness’ is controlled by two ‘flicks’ within the wall, one opening toward the south-west to scoop within the ‘Fremantle doctor’ to chill and also the other for the north to border a view in the coast and also to monitor the front yard below.

An ample outside room towards the north-west capitalises on breathtaking sights from the Indian Sea. A little room is hidden underneath the house in the rear, supplying an adaptable space that may be a fourth bed room, back-yard pavilion, office at home, or games room. Overall, it’s a residence that challenges the conventions of detached housing in Perth: small, lifted over the ground, no door, no garage, no front fence, no brick… a seaside house within the and surrounding suburbs.
