Eagle Bay House
Eagle Bay, 2011
This beach house in Eagle Bay offers a simple and modern living arrangement that blends with its surrounding bush setting. Three parallel rammed limestone walls, anchor the building to the site and form a private courtyard at the entry of the house. Teak sliding screens enclose this space providing a secure area for the family dog. A series of eco-ply structures created within, and around these walls form the main habitable rooms. The children’s area on the lower floor platform, has been raised slightly above the ground appearing to hover above the sloping landscape. This allows the vegetation to creep up to the house while providing a barrier to snakes and other vermin. A generous Kitchen, Dining and Living space is located on the top floor with a large outdoor deck providing a sheltered entertaining area and provides northerly views through the tree tops to the ocean.

The two storey rendered brick house is located on a subdivided block and has been designed in conjunction with the neighbouring house occupying the second part of the original lot. The house is articulated around a north facing outdoor living space which seamlessly connects to the Living, Dining and Kitchen area through large sliding doors. The house has a spacious feel, which has been achieved through an efficient use of space. It is filled with light and has an appropriate scale according to use. The gardens and surrounding trees complete the built form and provide shade and privacy. Natural materials in a neutral palette have been used outdoors and indoors which creates an inviting and comfortable home . The attention to detail is obvious throughout the house and is providing the owners with a very practical and livable home.

The three storey stone clad masonry house is a product of good design and fine detailed craftsmanship. The natural selection of external and internal materials provides a warmth and luxurious feel to the home. Centred around the north-western views of the Indian Ocean, the house has a versatile Outdoor Dining and Living area that extends the main Kitchen, Dining and Living area. The outdoor space can be enclosed with screens and doors so it can be enjoyed in all weather conditions. Generous room sizes, ceiling heights and filtered light combine to make this a spacious and comfortable home.
