This site slopes to the South East towards the road and the majority of the boundary is screened with low level natural hedgerows and supplementary planting. The site originally accommodated a small two storey farmhouse with an ancillary out house constructed marginally above the road level.

The original structure consisted of a two storey farmhouse, of restricted floor area, with an ancillary out house constructed marginally above the road level. The orientation of the existing dwelling house (like many of the structures in the area) was typical of dwelling houses of an era where aspect and daylight were not of primary concern. This has resulted in the main living area facing east, and therefore missing out on sunlight throughout the day.

Our design concept was to identify the optimum location for a new dwelling, utilising a narrow plan house minimises the need for excessive excavations and the natural contours to assimilate the proposed dwelling into the landscape. We proposed a structure that is both vernacular and contemporary.

The South facing elevation (public) is traditional in form and the openings have vertical proportions. The South West facing patio allows the occupants to enjoy the 'idea' of an outdoor lifestyle during warm/sunny evenings with magnificent views over the adjacent picturesque Bay in a sheltered environment, while the external courtyard area to the rear acts as a private space which compliments and facilitates the family's outdoor lifestyle away from the house with privacy assured.
