and Ideas within our Practice.
Evans Street House
Broken Head Road
The Bangalow house takes advantage of it's location and surrounding environment to use passive design principles, for example where the house is located on site, cross ventilation and nautral heating and cooling. The house is designed to be at one with the land and is built in carefully to the sloping site. The house has beautiful 360 degree views of surrounding Bangalow and Byron Bay shire hinterland. The design concept has been created with a environmental concicious approach, to benefit the clients vision and local environment.

Byron Bay Beach House #3
This coastal Byron Bay beach house by Davis Architects is currently in the sketch design phase.
Mollymook Beach House 1
This modern beach house located in Mollymook on the South Coast of NSW is currently at the development application stage. The design features the use of natural and environmentally friendly materials with the design aim of the house blending with it's coastal beach setting. The oversized floating "parasol" roof controls the amount of natural light coming into the house at different times of the year. As South Coast Architects the specific climate of the area was critical in the shaping of the final design solution.
A renovation of an existing house in Castlecrag, Sydney transforms a generic single level brick house into an extravagant three storey home maximising views over the forest into Crag Cove.
Byron Bay Beach House #2
Currently under construction, this environmentally responsive South American inspired home is located in the heart of Byron Bay NSW.
A four bedroom home with media room and library, the weatherboard beach house is modern in style yet sympathetic with other timber houses in the street.
Positioned on a north facing site, we pushed the limits of the stringent Byron Bay council controls to maximise the accommodation towards the front of the site. By achieving this it allowed for a generous open space at the rear of the site to be dedicated towards entertaining, recreation and lush tropical landscaping.
The oversized rear deck features an unencumbered "column free" 12 metre span. This space allows ample room for outdoor entertaining and echoes the wide verandahs common to traditional Queenslander style homes. This is an essential component when designing for the Byron Bay lifestyle and climate.
The Byron Bay Beach House has numberous environmental design features including passive solar design, a thermal chimney and adjustable sun controls throughout via shutters & overhangs.
Byron Bay Beach House #1
This Byron Bay beach house, located behind a reserve on Tallows Beach is currently undergoing construction. The house features sustainable architecture such as passive solar design and climate responsive solutions. The design is organised around a central courtyard and pool which effectively creates a lush tropical "oasis" appropriate to the Byron Bay beachside location. The "barriers" between inside and outside are broken down through the use of very large timber doors that disappear on the outside of the building when opened.
