Shortlisted, 2010 NSW AIA Residential Award, Copacabana House
A house in 2 parts nestles protected, behind the sand dune shaped heath. On the ground plane a concrete plinth stretches the full length of the block containing bedrooms, bathrooms and a garage. On level 1 above sits a lightweight pavilion, opening high to the northern light and low to the southern views. Light, shade, views and privacy are managed by sliding timber shutters, doors and a retractable awning, all of which provide a dynamic foil to the concrete mass below.
