Park House by Dock4 Architects rests atop the rugged coastal scrubs of Carlton Beach. An elongated, glazed box forms the main living space, running east-west. Northern glazing enables passive solar design principles, whilst the southern glazing provides an uninterrupted view across the bay towards the Tasman Peninsula.

Upon approach, the transparency of the bottom level frames views of the ocean through the crisp aperture of the building envelope. Large glass sliding walls to both sides of the building can be opened, leaving behind only the floor and ceiling to contain the living space.

The first floor above similarly takes on an elongated form, however perpendicular to below. The enclosed form containing the master suite and study provides privacy and a sense of retreat.

From the beach, the dark colour palette allows the house to blend into its natural surrounds.
