Coolum Beach House

Coolum Beach House works with the following design ideas:

The identification of ‘zones’ of use within the building program and within the site boundaries;

Respect for existing vegetation and careful new planting to improve privacy;

Strategic site orientation to take advantage of Northern sunlight and prevailing breezes;

Improved privacy from close neighbouring buildings and from the street but providing good outlook from internal spaces;

Keeping the overall building footprint small for economy and to allow for a possible future building pavilion;

Strong connections between existing site features and new proposed spaces;

Diverse program of spaces that make use of the sunlight at different stages of the day;

A strong connection with the lap pool and living zone, creating dynamic lighting effects with the water and cooling airflow.
