The brief called for a low maintenance dwelling (used in the first instance as a weekend retreat and later to become a permanent dwelling) that would engage with its great location. It is in a highly corrosive environment 250 metres from breaking surf. The southern (rear) boundary of the site abuts a coastal reserve containing primary, secondary and tertiary dunes.
