This modern Australian beach house called Hart House has been designed by Casey Brown Architecture. The steep slope makes a feeling like floating on water.
Casey Brown Architecture: Hart House is located on the idyllic shoreline of Great Mackerel Beach, and was conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the quintessential one-room Australian beach shack. The form was derived from a wrapped ‘box’ open to one side which provides the building with a protective corrugated aluminium shell. This shell protects the house from the harsh salt environment, cold winter southerly winds and bushfire prone landscape. Only one side of the box is left fully open – facing towards the sun and the view, allowing the dwelling to embrace the beachfront location.
