Waitpinga Retreat in Australia by Mountford Williamson Architecture

This house provides a retreat from the city, allowing its owners to enjoy the magnificent coastal bushland setting and time with family and friends. This is a true holiday home providing casual and informal living within flexible spaces, and reflects the owner’s desire to live as sustainably as possible.

The house needed to be flexible, at times a single bedroom retreat and other times expanding to house larger groups of family and friends.

At the intersection of private home and guest quarters is the breezeway, a gathering place and focal point of the home, where relaxed conversations occur, food is shared while the views of the ocean or the bush are enjoyed. This indoor/outdoor room can be opened up to act as a breezeway in warmer weather, or as a conservatory with the glazed doors closed in cooler weather.

The house operates “off grid” producing its own power, collecting rainwater for household use and treating its own wastewater.
