Designed to celebrate living on the water’s edge, the house responds to site context with indoor and outdoor spaces orientated both to the southern marina and the northerly aspect. Living areas are located for privacy from adjacent neighbours. The notion of a modern boat house is clearly expressed with defined single and two storey gable forms. Expansive outdoor living along the marina edge integrates indoor spaces with the openness and tranquility of the marina.
The long linear nature of the form is broken up with stepped and angular forms . High level northern windows maintain privacy but still provide a sense of connection to the streetscape, and provide northern sun. Vertical timber battens are used extensively to the exterior, breaking up the mass of the building and filtering light to the spaces within.
