This holiday house designed by Middap Ditchfield Architects, located on an elevated site overlooking Peregian Beach and foreshore, Queensland, Australia. Courtyard spaces have been introduced to reduce building bulk, capture north light and promote thru building viewing opportunities to the pool, ocean and other areas of the house. A central circulation spine is flanked by an off form concrete wall which continues for the length of the house. This is the key feature of the house, it provides thermal mass for natural climate control, defines the circulation spine and the off form board finish presents a weathered driftwood character. Solar hot water systems have been installed and roof water is collected in above ground tanks for reuse.
