Alcorn Street, Suffolk Park, Byron Bay
This large beachside site had a very small (12m x12m) allowable building envelope. The design challenge for us was to get an adequately sized house within the envelope while maximising the outlook over the treetops to the ocean, Cape Byron and Tallow Lake.
Our solution was an upside down house where the top floor is a single large, light and airy living room with an expansive outlook in all directions.
Bedrooms are on the floor below with a lap pool. A partly underground garage completes the project.
Our clients’ love of bright colour (they are both artists) gives a personal touch to the exterior.
