Solitary Island view @ North Sapphire Beach

Home > Custom Designed Homes

The brief was to design a modern two story dwelling with upper level living to encapsulate the wonderful view to the North East of the Solitary Island Marine Park, Split Solitary Island and the Pacific Ocean. With Open plan living and entertaining, the four bedroom home was designed with main bedroom up stairs with the remainder of the bedrooms for their children down. This also gives the upper level a greater feeling of all living and family.

The design idea was to have an open feeling to the large entry foyer area and to minimising hallways and for this to continue as you move up the stairs to the upper level.

The customer had a purchased a large cane light that she wanted incorporated in the design therefore a large fixed glass window above the foyer entry was positioned to enable the light to position itself for entry appeal not only from internally but externally as well when you approach the front of the dwelling. The aspect of the block and design lent itself to taking advantage of passive natural light in the morning with living areas facing north east and therefore the use of glass in providing a comfortable cosy feeling to enhance thermal performance was achieved and further allowed for great cross flow ventilation.

Windows on the western elevation have utilised to allow cross flow ventilation to the rear of the upper level but also in areas where needed to reduce direct westerly sun.

The bathroom and ensuite have been designed open plan with the use of Louvre windows for ventilation in the ensuite with a large double shower and semi frameless shower screen to create a larger open feeling.

The large bond deck slab alfresco area to the eastern view provides great north easterly breezes with clear stainless steel and glass balustrade to maximise the view.

The designing of the home utilised the builders and owners ideas as well as using 3D drafting programs to finalise the facade. The exterior showcased composite materials while maintaining clean lines. The use of acrylic rendered brick work with a mix of James Hardies Stria to the front elevation is evident

The home blends well within the mixed streetscape of the North Sapphire Beach surrounds.
