Located in Quindalup, near Yallingup, this home
is perched on an eastern-oriented slope with
stunning views of Geographe Bay. While the view
was the design’s focus, a link to the surrounding
bushland was also important. As a result, framed
views from within the residence were established
away from the main vista to take advantage of the
natural environment, reinforcing the ‘bush’ setting.
The position of the house, which was dictated
by those all-important views, called for careful
consideration when it came to environmental
efficiency and solar heat loads. An extensive roof
overhang provides protection to both the exposed,
east-facing windows as well as an external deck.
Existing trees provide supplementary shading to
the eastern and western facades.
Committed to making the building process a pleasant one, Hillam
Architects is helping West Australians realise their architectural dreams.
In order to create a connection with the
bushland surrounds, framed views were established
away from the main vista of Geographe Bay.
