Bluey’s Beach ‘4’ by Bourne Blue Architecture

By Kim McFayden 1 year ago2 Comments

This Bluey’s Beach home on the mid North coast of NSW was conceived by Bourne Blue Architecture based on a brief for simplicity, durability and authenticity. The owners were not interested in anything ostentatious and were keen to conserve the existing Angophera trees and the views to the rear of the property.

The challenge was to create privacy as well as a strong indoor outdoor connection. A roof zig zags over the two areas for sleeping and living, with adjacent courtyards and decks further extending the living area to the outdoors.

The structure steps with the land so that when viewed from the street, the bulk is minimized. Materials throughout relate to the context of the village, are economical and corrosion resistant. Timber is used extensively, floors are all polished concrete internally, stone externally. Eaves are fibre cement.

Sustainable features – High performance glass to all doors and windows, correctly orientated thermal mass, heavy insulation to walls and ceilings, rainwater harvesting for wc, laundry, garden usage, minimal footprint to building, using less materials and resources, sustainable timber use such as reconstituted timber concealed structure, birch plywood linings and joinery internally, sustainably forested cladding, Heat Pump hot water technology
