Forever House

The inspiration for this beach house began with a 300 year old Moonah tree, a slightly sloping block, and a home that could take the clients well into the future. And it became known as 'The Forever House'.

Located among vegetated sand dunes, house and nature are closely entwined. With a BAL-40 rating on the Moonah tree side of the house, the building needed to be not only high performing but also provide a fire-shield. Paarhammer Bushfire Safe windows and doors, combined with Viridian PyroGuard 40 double glazed units, provide peace of mind and enable the house and tree to coexist so closely.

A folded ceiling serves as a light-catcher in the main living/family room, and gives a pavilion feel of openness along both main elevations. Ample light combined with the easily adjusted flow of sea breezes gives a relaxed holiday vibe.

In addition to highly energy efficient windows and doors, the home has many sustainable features, including solar panels, a solar hydronic heat system, heat pumps for water, water tanks and fans. Featuring bluestone floors and concrete block walls, the house maintains a comfortable 22 deg c – no cooling needed.
