Sections of the house are clad in timber, while the roof has been made from corrugated aluminium. The entrance has been designed to be deliberately understated, with a modest canopy sheltering the front door.

Inside, there’s a landing with views of a courtyard, before stepping down into the social areas of the house.

The kitchen looks out over the open-plan dining and lounge areas that open up to outdoor spaces on both sides, while granite covers the floor and wood slats are featured on the ceiling.

Adjacent to the interior living spaces are outdoor spaces, like a sun deck, lounge and dining / kitchen area, that have been designed for entertaining. Movable screens allow for protection from the elements when needed.

Back inside and by the front door are stairs with a glass railing, that rise alongside a CNC-cut timber screen.

Upstairs and in the master bedroom suite, architectural materials such as concrete and granite have been used, while the bedroom is positioned to have elevated views across the lagoon and to the mountains beyond.

In the bathroom that’s open to the bedroom, wood flooring adds warms to the space, while a vertical window provides a glimpse of the view from the bathtub.
