Comfortable Black Beach House
SheOak House, designed by Base Architecture, is located in Kingscliff, New South Wales, Australia. The black box on a beach-front lot is designed in informal, casual, comfortable and welcoming style. The 350 square meter house is done in mix of steel, timber and concrete. It’s resistant to such weather conditions as wind, salt and sun. The double height entry with grass underfoot and natural landscape consists of a semi indoor/outdoor space constructed of clear weatherboards. The area is designed for the wetsuit to be abandoned into the concealed laundry and for racking the surfboards. The ground level has a quite simple open plan and opened up to a courtyard and a pool. Upstairs consists of simple bedroom and bathroom facilities that interact with the ground level and entry via a series of voids and openings. Overall this house evokes openness and a casual sensation that typifies what a beach house should be.
