13th beach holiday home
Connewarre | Victoria
Status Completed 2005
Built on the residential subdivision at the Thirteenth Beach golf course in Barwon Heads, this holiday home’s design of floating roof planes reflects the surrounding landscape of windswept tea trees.
The building stretches across the block acting as a wind break against the strong south-westerly winds. Both upstairs and downstairs living areas open to a northern balcony and deck respectively. The external materials are a combination of split faced blockwork, rendered blueboard, anodised aluminium windows and a dark stained timber all chosen for their low maintenance requirements and synergy with their context.
