Beach House in Canada by Cibinel Architecture Ltd.

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Article source: Cibinel Architecture Ltd.

Fully exposed to spectacular sunsets and impressive thunderstorms, the Beach House embraces the prairie skies and changing waterscapes. This 2,000-square foot residence was designed to echo the stone and wood cottage vernacular of this beach side community. Harmonizing with the surrounding landscape, cedar and fir were used both inside and out, and emit the natural aesthetic of an age-old building material.

Beach House in Victoria, Australia by DX Architects

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: DX Architects

The Blairgowrie Beach House on the Mornington Peninsula retained and altered the rear proportion of the existing building and expanded the dwelling forward on a steeply sloped site to accommodate additional living and sleeping areas. Manipulations of the building form were employed to address the access disconnect and setup a conceptual framework where we continued our practices interest in spatial division patterns. The new first floor incorporates a large cantilevered metal clad form which created a covered area for car parking, and was counteracted with concrete rendered vertical walls which pushed out to level out the land. Continuing formal manipulations, the metal clad form had volumes carved out to incorporate a balcony space, and a feature vertical window to illuminate at night and interact with the public realm when the house is being occupied.

Slaughterhouse Beach House in Hawaii by Olson Kundig

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Located close to a well-known surfing spot, Slaughterhouse Beach House expands the concept of a traditional surfing hut with three connected huts—general living quarters, guest suites, and a main sleeping area. The huts’ corrugated metal roofs take their inspiration from traditional Hawaiian roofs (as popularized by the architect C. W. Dickey), which help to naturally ventilate the islands’ indigenous structures. Studies of the site revealed virtually constant winds. Using the Dickey-style roof as a starting point, the design was turbocharged, deliberately shaping roof forms and openings to allow breezes to pull hot air out.

1770 in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

1770 is a bold, rustic beach house on a truly unique site on the edge of the Coral Sea. The east-facing house is conceived around a northerly courtyard (which sits in the lee of the wind) with transparent walls allowing panoramic views from all parts of the house. A rustic, raw material palette of stone, silvering timber and textured plaster speaks of the natural weathering that this place is all about.

Northern Rivers Beach House in Northern NSW, Australia by REFRESH*DESIGN

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: REFRESH*DESIGN

Located in a beachside setting, the architectural brief for this project was to design a contemporary, yet cost effective three-bedroom house, well connected to nature and featuring subtropical open-plan living in a temperate climate. The initial premise for the design was to ‘re-interpret’ the beach house by integrating traditional materials of corrugated metal, fibre cement sheeting and timber elements, onto a contemporary and dynamic shape.
