A new house on the leeward side of a beach-side dune in Scarborough. Three storeys each interact with distinct aspects of the site.

Location: Perth, Australia

Project size: 300 m2
Site size: 1000 m2
Completion date: 2018

The house engages with the street through the gesture of a courtyard, which collects northern light and sea breeze. This is the primary level of the house. A bay window frames distant views and closer views down to the pool.
Below, a family room cuts into the dune and opens out toward the backyard. Above, the master bedroom and study connect further afield and lead to a viewing platform that looks out toward the Indian Ocean.
Our task was to create a practical and robust container to accommodate our clients’ aspirations for a carefree and family-oriented future, that reminded them of the Scarborough they used to know.
