A holiday beach house for former clients on untouched, undulating land scattered with peppermint trees – beach to the front and inlet to the rear. With enough space for multiple families or couples, this house is designed to maximise occupancy while remaining extremely compact. Two bedroom wings link into a central living pod, keeping almost all the trees, framing the views and creating a feeling of ‘holiday’.

Close to the beach, this house features two separate and fully-equipped family wings, a central living zone and integrated bunk beds and sleeping space for 14 people. Taking advantage of the WA coastal climate there is also an indoor/outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, fire pit, open fireplace, window reading seat and garage.
