By focusing on the privacy and seclusion afforded by a natural Melaleuca backdrop which wraps around the southeast of the site, whilst at the same time, ensuring double height indoor/outdoor living spaces enjoy the benefits of a good north east aspect, creates a dual focus to this family beach house at Coolum.
Tucked comfortably into it’s corner site at the Southern end of the Beachside Estate, seamless polished concrete provides a continuous floor surface between internal and external terraces, whilst natural vertical timber cladding references the silvery grey paperbarks of the Melaleuca forested site.
From the north east aspect, winter sun is welcomed into the house through generous double height spaces whilst in summer, harsh light is filtered delicately through natural vertical ‘green’ screens of endemic coastal vines.
Beachside is a luxury, beachfront development that draws its inspiration and direction from its beautiful setting, the timeless quality of great architecture and the laid back Queensland lifestyle. It is a quintessential mix of beach, home and resort style living in partnership with one of the world’s leading hotel and leisure brands.
