Torquay Project

Prior to designing this residence, I had completed another project (a multi-dwelling development, consisting of four beach houses) for the same clients. They were living in an old weatherboard residence on the site and the idea of designing a new home was thrown around. I had a specific style in mind and gradually introduced my ideas to the client. The project had to be ultra modern, with minimalist detail, and open-plan living. The overall layout was to be orientated around a lap pool, with living spaces that easily interact between family members and guests. This project won the award for Most Effective Use of Colour through the consistency of colour used in this design, which works well within this ultra modern, yet minimalist project. The designer created the design, came up with the finishes and the colour schedules, and also built the project. Every detail was thought out and integrated.
