Bicheno Heirloom is a family home tucked away on the East Coast of Tasmania on a recently subdivided, 1ha piece of land that benefits from direct coastal access. The project sought to test the strength and resolve of a family as a newly minted architect and newly minted builder brought the home to life for their parents who were gearing up for retirement and a sea change from country to coast.
The brief was simple and clear. A family home that is beautiful, connected to nature and built to last.
The home is firmly grounded into and on the site and creates a diverse range of spaces that celebrate the aspect and connects with nature both near and far. A central courtyard provides refuge and shelters its occupants from the prevailing easterly breeze.
Heirloom. Something of special value handed down from one generation to another.
