The residence is a space full of bright light and moody shadows with a simple layout of space focused on looking outwards while still feeling enclosed and cosy as on board a ship.
We wanted the residence to make a thing that has been left behind, like a shell on a beach, with the soft bits dried up leaving a strangely marked, internally contoured object.
With the residence frontage on Beaconsfield Parade Allan wanted to have the house engage with the water rather than the roadway and slightly elevated the ground floor level to erase the view of the roadway and frame the body of water beyond.
Allan has also been considerate to the street elevation hence a non-ego driven structure.
The building aesthetic is based around the idea of the interior focusing on the exterior.
