Suburban Beach House by David Barr + Ross Brewin

Imagining the surbuban home as beach shack with benefits, Suburban Beach House by David Barr + Ross Brewin, in coastal Perth, Australia, architecturally combines the origins of the client couple and challenges the convention of the large brick house typical of the area's emerging development.


The home, raised in the Queenslander style, has no front door, fence or garage, with carpark located in the space underneath, and reflects the casual weatherboard design of a west-Australian beach cabin. To maximize the view over surrounding rooftops, overall volume is kept to a minimum to offset the cost of raising the structure, which in turn lowers the energy consumption footprint. Via ArchDaily.
