under-slats allows natural light to filter
through, offering a stunning pergola effect.
Complementing the understated look of
the bathroom is the simple column shower,
where water is drained through the timber
slats of the floor to a tank where it is
processed for irrigation use.
Western red cedar band-sawn weather
boards line the walls, which also feature
hoop pine, while a cavity slider with
translucent glass connects the ensuite
bathroom to the master bedroom.
Continuing with the modernist
utilitarian approach, the kitchen is
prominently made up of concrete floors,
stainless steel appliances and pine
cabinetry. The steely greys of the
industrial materials sit in perfect
contrast to the warmth of the veneers
on the cabinetry and island.
Pantry doors that fold back into recesses
on each side save on space and sit alongside
a spacious upright fridge and freezer. While
the owners are keen on barbecuing, the
kitchen also features a Falcon range for
evenings spent inside.
Vegetable cabinets beneath the large
island bench are perforated for ventilation.
This area also houses a dishwasher, rubbish,
recycling and compost bins, as well as a
drinks cabinet, glassware and china.
Light and air quality have been
carefully considered in both the kitchen
and bathroom, in a bid to enhance
the captivating setting. The durable
materials reflect the site context and
fulfil the requirements of a harsh seaside
environment, while the whole design
seamlessly mirrors the land, country
and climate in which they live.
