The View

Starbox Architecture as Architects

A renovation of an existing deck that has been transformed into a glass enclosed flexible indoor/ outdoor space with a view of the surrounding beaches below.


What was the brief?


With a view to die for and a shaded East deck to view it from, the clients asked how they could turn the space into a year round useable area whilst maintaining the view.


What were the key challenges?


How to Frame the view. 

Create a useable year round space. 

A flexible outdoor and indoor space. 

Maximise sunlight and daylight. 

Provide ventilation but protection from the wind. 

Re-use the existing steel structure.


What were the solutions?


Full floor to ceiling glazed sections 

Enclosed space to protect from the wind but allow maximum sun penetration 

Vergola automated roof system to allow ventilation, light and sunlight on demand.


The design enables the owners to have a flexible outdoor space that enlarges the useable living areas while enjoying the views to the surrounding beaches and the national park year round.
