Occupying the former garden of an existing 1970s house this house features a dramatic curved charred red ironbark facade with shutters closing to create a singular sculptural form.This form presents retained moonah trees to the community celebrating their extended limbs.It has 3 bedrooms and features a large open living that hosts acoustic performances for up to 40 people.This space has a focal point for a suspended fireplace and the performers and has been acoustically designed with a linear acoustic ceiling ,polished white concrete floor and natural red ironbark walls that follow the curved burnt exterior walls exposing the inside of the “burnt facade “.
The owners have a large garden in the city so this house has smaller open spaces with a north courtyard,shuttered internal balcony overlooking the moonahs and a rooftop deck with views to the dunes and stars.It offers much to the community while still being a private escape .
