This home emulates a luxurious, coastal safari retreat feel for a retired couple moving to the North Coast. The home is nestled into its site with a balanced use of natural materials such as stone, glass, steel and timber enhancing its minimalist design within the gradual sloping site. With views over the estate’s natural reserve of coastal flora and fauna, this U-shaped home draws the attention from the best of the site. A seamless indoor/outdoor flow allows the occupants shelter within their wind protected courtyard and covered patio, whilst drawing in the natural light deep into the courtyard from the North and providing solar protection against the West setting sun. The home’s natural flow also allows for cross ventilation throughout to cool the home in the North Coast’s Tropical climate. The bedrooms and home office are perched high to overlook the nature reserve in an attempt to enhance the feeling that you are waking up in your own safari getaway, daily.
