This compact contemporary home in a beachside Adelaide suburb is designed to maximise its northern orientation by being located towards the back of the block and utilising the front of the block for outdoor living and entertaining. A courtyard allows the open plan living space to open on both sides and allows northern light into the rooms to the back of the house. The material pallet of the new house will include many raw finishes, have minimal painted surfaces, and will reuse the stone of the existing house. Construction of this home is about to begin.
