Rural Retreat

Design & Beyond as Architects

Located within the Byron Bay hinterland the site receives 270 degrees uninterrupted coastline and rural views.

Tucked just below the ridge line the residence shelters from southerly winds. The linear form ensures each room has access to the panoramic views. A column free cantilevered roof covers the deck that runs the entire length of the glazed north facing façade.

A 5 meter high feature stone wall housing the fire places, splices the longitudinal form to demarcate formal living areas from the sleeping zone. This dissection sets up the entrance and an outdoor protected courtyard.

Together with sustainability the indoor and outdoor connection theme very much influenced the design. Upon entering through the front door a view of the coastline is framed by the oversized windows. The sunrise out of the ocean is welcomed at the eastern end where the master bedroom and outdoor shower is located. As well as ocean vistas the open plan living, kitchen and dining enjoys sunset views reflecting off the infinity pool to the west.

The interiors have been kept minimal so as not to distract from the northern views. Light timber and white epoxy floors help reflect daylight deep into the interior.
