House FoC

NOTABLE FEATURES / COMMENTS
This project entailed substantial renovations to a bungalow located on Clifton 3rd Beach. The external shell was kept largely intact, but the interior was reconfigured in order to increase the accommodation and modernise the finishes. The views from the bungalow are unprecedented, but there is a harsh glare which comes off the sea in the afternoons, so sliding shutters were designed to deal with this problem, while still permitting light and views. The finishes are a simple palette of timber, glass and white walls and joinery, allowing the house to become an understated backdrop to the superlative site and surroundings.
