Azure AZ Award of Merit Residential Architecture 04

Set into the bank of an estuary, this weekend home achieves that elusive combination of rustic charm and contemporary elegance. The 250-square-metre structure is made of steel, concrete and cross-laminated timber panels, with stone and cork floors warmed by geo­thermal heating. On the first floor, where the kitchen and living room are located, full-height glazing outlined in a fluorescent beam of light slides away completely, opening up the interior to the wooded lot. The top floor – where vertical chestnut louvres enclose the bedrooms as well as outdoor spaces – canti­levers effortlessly above it all.
