HARBOURVIEW HOUSE | 2006
This house comprises three wings on a rectangular site organised around a courtyard with views of the ocean. The three wings consist of the main living areas to the east, the master suite and entry patio to the south and the single-storey entertainment area to the west.
Entry to the house is choreographed through a series of spaces. A stone feature wall fronts the entry court where the visitor is greeted by a dramatic pitched roof of two wings ‘floating’ above the wall. Formed by aluminium sections, the roof appears to wrap around the sides of the second storey, providing a strong feature element that leads the visitor through the feature wall. Crossing a bridge, the entry pavilion is surrounded by water and opens out to a swimming pool and lawn area. Large glazed areas on the ground floor of the east and west wings take further advantage of the ocean views beyond the pool.
