The architectural design of this luxury Bangalow house in the Byron Bay hinterland gained its inspiration from an aircraft wing. Situated on a south-facing block, this design concept allows for an abundance of winter sun to enter from the north plus protection from the southerly winds. An environmentally conscious approach was important to the design to benefit both the client's vision and the local environment. The house is therefore built in carefully to the sloping site and uses passive design principles for heating and cooling.
The dual-aspect living spaces provides maximum enjoyment of the stunning views over the rural hinterland landscape as well as the courtyard and pool. Entertaining was a major consideration in the design, with the kitchen easily accessed from the covered deck and dining room. The minimalist approach to the architectural design allows for comfortable living all year round.
“After talking with the Architect's Institute of Australia we engaged Davis Architects who guided us from ‘initial concept’ all the way through to ‘construction and completion’. We were living in Sydney for the majority of the design, development and approval process so it was good to know that Davis Architects were managing local issues with Council and other authorities. This local knowledge teamed with their use of the latest technology allowed us to communicate easily with all parties and share documents and drawings easily. The house is striking and showcases many unique details but retains a sense of timeless form and function. Thank you Ed and the team at Davis Architects.” Glen & Deb Christopherson
