Casuarina Residence

The northern region of New South Wales includes several idyllic coastal areas – where the lifestyle is relaxed and the vernacular Architecture responds well to climate and context.

Our brief for a house in Casuarina – was based on a traditional beach retreat.

Located along uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean – the design is based on sound environmental principles. From the street – the house is a protected bunker with minimal fenestration. Materials used are untreated hardwood cladding and lightweight pre-lacquered fibre cement panels.

The eastern elevation is split into two contrasting wings – which provide all-weather cover large outdoor living decks.
