18 Third Beach

Clifton, 1997 / 2007

Located directly on a pristine and wind-protected beach, this alteration intended to introduce a characterless and disjointed cottage to its elemental context of beach, sea and sky.

Large openings were introduced into the external wall planes and the many internal and external levels simplified to create a strong inside-outside flow.

A minimal approach was taken with the interior – the ceiling was expressed as a continuous unifying rough timber canopy over a clean reflective ground plane, with all individual elements arranged to create a simple, coherent and calm environment.
