The project is situated on a steeply sloping sandy site with expansive views over natural landscape to the ocean to the south and east.
The design is two-storey house elevated on steel foundations. It is an uncompromising stack of minimalist cantilevering boxes, reminiscent of a Jenga tower, with all walls facing the ocean in floor to ceiling glass.
The site drops away steeply from the road, so the house is accessed by a feature steel mesh entry bridge and vehicle ramp which connects to main entry and double car garage on the upper level. The garage door is a flush-set tilt-panel which preserves the refined minimalist finish of the building.
The upper level is self-contained executive apartment style living, with open plan kitchen, living, dining and master bedroom suite all looking out to the ocean through floor to ceiling glass. The expansive 10m wide entertainment deck with frameless glass balustrades is integrated onto the roof of the cantilevered modules below, and perched 7m above the ground with commanding ocean views. There is a large walk-in-robe and beautifully appointed ensuite with frameless glass corner window, separate powder room and laundry. The upper level modules feature clerestory windows providing light and natural cross-ventilation into the centre of the house.
A folded steel feature stair leads from the entry bridge to the lower level which includes a self-contained 1-bedroom apartment, and another separate bedroom suite with ensuite. The 1-bedroom apartment has a kitchenette and ensuite and the living area has floor to ceiling operable glass wall with integrated frameless glass balustrade. There is a large entertainment deck with views to the ocean, and a second 1-bedroom apartment with floor to ceiling glass onto a private balcony, kitchenette, and ensuite (stage 2).
The module frames are factory built, galvanised and painted ensuring a precision finish.
