The top storey acts as a self-sufficient lookout for when it is in use by a single couple, while downstairs acts as a family extension, with focus placed on play around the pool, spa, barbeque deck and cinema. Upstairs is decadent in its finishes and complex plan while downstairs is laid out and finished more simplistically; there is a play off between warm rustic materials and contemporary decadence.

The views, planning setbacks, site orientation, prevailing winds and land fall all promoted an Easterly aspect; so we acted accordingly. We then went about making the most of the less than ideal solar orientation of the house by exposing the slab to the North, blocking the Westerly winds and sun, limiting openings to the South/street and controlling the morning sun. Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe site specifics and clients brief presented a challenge for environmental design but we prevailed by including the following initiatives in the design. Exposed slab to collect solar energy with 15-20% recycled fly ash Highly durable decking material of recycled plastic and timber Highly insulated and durable double-glazed UPVC windows High grade timber cladding that will grey gracefully Solar heated pool Highly-insulated walls, floor and ceiling Minimal southern and western glazing Optimized cross ventilation The design has a highly efficient layout and a more complex aesthetic than the inhabitants might have expected. In both ways the design breaks from their current conventions and provides a new way of being. The clients constantly say they can’t wait to get back to the house; what more could a designer want?Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessStudio Loft / GASPARBONTASelected ProjectsEvent: Interior and Experience DesignEvent Share Brent Casbolt Builders Engineer:Meyer ConsultingDesign Team:Jason Gec, Jorja GecCity:RhyllCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Shannon McGrathText description provided by the architects. The site is engrossed by nature and aspect, therefore the design competes by being bold, sharp and textural. This boldness and form is also an expression of the clients and their family expanding out of their current holiday house, a caravan.
