The decision was taken to resist the typical approach of
flattening and filling the site, resulting in the retention of an
existing limestone ridge. The original ridge was then used as
a natural retaining wall, instead of the usual reconstituted
limestone retaining wall which is typically used as the starting
point of new residences.
The two-metre fall through the centre of the block presented
some challenges when working the site. “We turned this into
an opportunity, however, by creating a limestone garden and
raising the house to create a carport underneath,” says David.
“The decision to expose the limestone provided a beautiful
element to the house.”
As well as creating this shaded garden and an underbelly in
which to house utilities, cars, beach paraphernalia, gardening
equipment and a flexible room, the raised residence also means
more could be made of the coastal views.
