Clipper Quay

Winner Excellence in Use of Recycled Materials

Designer: Quin Wyatt Building Designers
Builder: Owner/Builder
Photographer: Rhys Ferguson, Stylescapes
Location: Safety Beach, VIC

Building materials, recycled materials, both have a unified connection. Clipper Quay has achieved an integrated use of the two. The recycled timbers and the use of earth-tone colours collectively have a unique form. The recycled timbers have been utilised through the property in many zones, externally and internally. Its connection with the stone walls, the concrete formed benches, and the earth-tone joinery has provided the character of the dwelling. The gallery effect of the white walls and ceilings provide the background for the overall display.
