Ocean Blue Loop, Peppermint Grove Beach

Ocean Blue Loop, Peppermint Grove Beach 2018

A holiday house on an ocean front 845m2 sloping site. Designed around the ocean views and site climatic conditions, the open plan living/dining areas take centre stage to capture the ocean panorama. Sheltered from the strong southwesterly breezes, the external living areas are placed to the north east but still retain ocean views.

A low pitch roof makes the most of the imposed height limit and the form is articulated into simple offset rectangular box forms punctuated by extensive glazing to capture views. External blinds are used for sun control.

A simple and robust material palette of face brick and profiled cement board sheeting reflect the oceanfront location and low maintenance recreational brief.

Expected completion: Dec 2018
