ROSEDALE BEACH HOUSE
Located in a beautiful bushland setting backing onto reserve this coastal site was subject to the highest bushfire attack level category ‘Flame Zone’. A steeply sloping block combined with the client’s requirement to avoid any stairs presented additional challenges. Metal roller shutters were carefully integrated into the design enabling compliance with the strict bushfire resistant construction requirements while still allowing large expanses of glazing to capture the spectacular filtered views to the ocean. The design employs a contemporary and controlled architectural language while also paying homage to the traditional fibro beach house.
