Home' Homes : Homes 2009 Contents Beachside beauty
With equal focus on indoor and outdoor living, life is a (sea) breeze at this contemporary beach house.
The brief for this dream home by the ocean was
to successfully combine the joys of coastal living with
the conveniences of a modern home.
The home needed to be low maintenance yet
hardwearing and the design team at Craig Sheiles
Homes took this into consideration, particularly when
it came to protecting the west facing home against the
sun and wind, without sacrificing views or functionality.
A large kitchen was also part of the design brief and
reflecting homeowners' demands for style in every facet of
modern homes, the Craig Sheiles Homes' in-house architect
paid particular attention to the design of wet areas as well as
the traditional bedrooms, bathroom and living areas.
Passive solar design and cross flow ventilation
were other considerations that needed to be taken
into account, as were the strict Harbour Rise design
guidelines a ecting all projects in the exclusive estate
overlooking Hillarys Boat Harbour.
Finally, all this had to be fitted on a small residential
lot with rear garage access.
