With an enviable position perched high above Avalon beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, this simple, yet thoughtfully designed home is the perfect response to an environmentally aware client and a company who strive to educate their clients on sustainable building.
The house, with two-bedrooms and one-bathroom, was prefabricated off-site meaning the build time was an incredibly short six weeks. The exterior of the house is clad in sustainably grown blackbutt hardwood with a green roof adding furniture installation. The orientation of the house also assists in providing the more sustainable way of life with the east-west axis aiding in cross-ventilation.
The interior of the home follows on from the exterior with clean-lines and timber being a key feature. The kitchen too has been made a feature in a bold petrol blue colour. What I love most about this house is that it is not trying to be the biggest or the best. All it wants to be is honest and it certainly achieves that.
