Designed for two people who often receive visits from grown children, grand children & elderly parents, South Coast Residence combines architecture ingenuity with function: “The clients have a love for boats, concrete and all things Japanese. Our aim was to create a safe harbor for living; to borrow and imbed the ocean-scape within the house views and to make a home of beauty and craftsmanship. A house that would creatively display the client’s art and pottery collection. A house that environmentally responded to its location.”, explained the developing team at Indyk Architects.
South Coast Residence in Australia exhibits a timber exterior, inspired by the coastal shacks that were previously part of the site. But as you move further inside, a concrete case is also revealed. Taking local height restrictions into consideration, as well as the nature of the surrounding landscape, the house consists of three levels, maximizing ocean views.
