Harley Graham Architects have designed ‘Light Wave’, a backyard landscape, pool, and cabana project, that has views of Byron Bay in Australia.

The architects wanted to create a sculptural cabana design, as it sits beside a prominent public walkway called ‘The Lighthouse Walk’.

The architects mention, “People stream past it everyday as they head towards the lighthouse. Most people love it and there is a wide array of nicknames for it throughout the town.”

Located on a very steep site, which is also a dune, the foundation piers were created 6m deep in two directions to hold up the pool.

The cabana, designed in the shape of a cresting wave, is clad in Blackbutt, adding a sense of warmth and sensuality to the folded form.

Below the cabana is a bathroom with a shower. A large holding tank set underground is fed by rainwater off the house roof, and no town water is connected to the pool or its pumps.


This modern bathroom with grey tiles and a walk-in shower with glass shower screen, is located within a pool cabana. #Bathroom #ModernBathroom
