VERANDAH HOUSE BYRON BAY
Set on a small site of 550m2 backing onto a nature reserve in a quiet pocket of Byron Bay, the aim of Verandah House was to create a house “in nature”. Integration of landscape was key, with four distinct garden spaces that are dragged into the house by the permeable design. Inspiration was found in the modern Balinese Villa where the main hallway is a covered outdoor space. The central courtyard design allows for light from many varied directions to permeate into the plan. Doors can slide away to open whole sides of rooms to external spaces, blurring the lines between inside & out. Natural materials such as zinc, locally sourced stone, ecologically sourced timber and glass were also integral to the design’s sustainable approach.
