A 1980’s brick and tile home in the beachside suburb of Suffolk Park just south of Byron Bay. The project entailed renovating and extending the single-storey that now holds a kitchen and sunken lounge. The brief was to create a space that was timeless, with a warm homely cabin feel, in keeping with the original cedar beams.
It was important to ensure the design engaged with the landscape, creating an Australian connection to the outdoors. The sunken lounge room maximises access to nature, natural light and ventilation with windows connecting to the outdoor spaces.
A strong contrast between the natural materials used has been created from cedar joinery, textured sandstone fireplace, polished onyx island bench and spotted gum lined walls and floor. It has forged the perfect balance between the soft furnishings and textured natural stone elements.
