This house is designed by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects for a retired couple. The construction is completed in Crescent Head, Australia, with an open, airy, ‘beachy’ and generous scale. Crescent Head House is designed with a simple weatherboard structure on a stone base, celebrating its wonderful views and site.
This house is designed with a simple weatherboard structure on a stone base. It has a top floor with a garage while the level access, study, and a bedroom will be the main living level for the house owners. A separate but internally connectable 3 bedroom apartment can be found below with its living area and kitchen for future tenants or visiting family.
The 10m wide clear span and folded weatherboard ceiling are opened up to celebrate the stunning views and site surrounding. This house also has very high ceilings that combined with a subtle twist in roof form to create a joyful and unique space.
This house remains timeless, simple, and connected to its landscape both externally and internally. The architect also uses sustainable principles to incorporate water recycling, thermal mass, sun-shading, and cross ventilation in the building’s bones and its siting.
The main surface of this house interior is dominated in white while the floor and stair are designed with beautiful stone. For some parts, the architect also uses wood to design the doors and ceilings. The rooms of this house is designed as open as possible to let stunning views enter the rooms easily.
