Whitewood House is a four-bedroom city dweller that represents to the client ‘coastal living without boundaries’. With a 7.5 metre sloping site, the street address portrays a welcoming and engaging façade to its village street close and opens out to the south to capture the picturesque views of Walsh’s Pyramid.
The cheerful and balanced forms in elevation take their cue from the surrounding topography. The strong linear roof line mirrors the horizon line of the mountain backdrop and the repeating vertical steel and timber elements respond to the prominent rainforest behind.
At Whitewood House, the threshold between the inside and outside is the pool balanced in scale by enclosing the house on its sides and by separation of level to the street. The interiors are tropical, refreshing, uncomplicated and generous.
