Despite this three-storey home still being under development, the plan and design are already demonstrating admirable and innovative characteristics.
Understandably, the owners want to make the most of the views from the front of this 1036sqm lot, while following solar principles and providing shelter from winds.
The contemporary style of the home requires the incorporation of low-maintenance landscaping, with ocean views captured from the rear alfresco and pool area through the glazed main communal spaces.
This second level incorporates these living areas across the front of the home, separating the dining and lounge areas with a stone fireplace. The kitchen will feature stone benchtops, a scullery and e-nook, with an island bench and seating for six to eight people.
Bedrooms will be located along the southern side of the third level, with the master bedroom and ensuite located at the front.
The northern elevation of levels two and three will be fully glazed, with louvres fixed to the third level windows to limit solar penetration.
A study, guest bed, wine cellar, six-car garage and practical spaces will be on the ground level.
In terms of distinct materials, the clients have selected Toodyay stone for feature walls, travertine and timber flooring, and stacking sliding doors. An infinity-edge lap pool and a flat-roof pavilion have been carefully positioned to ensure protection from strong winds..
