Vitamin Sea – Culburra beach

Vitamin Sea is a major renovation to multi-storey house located on the dunes of Culburra beach

The design explores a response to the stunning ocean views to the south as in Major influence in the planning arrangement to accommodate a family in beachside living.

Vitamin Sea is an example of negotiating between multiple issues such as:

  • Elevated site over coastal erosion zones
  • large engineered pile to meet the Shoalhaven council coastal erosion zone
  • its fantastic views to the east and optimal orientation to the north.
  • Vegative buffer
  • A Coastal Hamptons style of living

The Strategy for this project was to negate all these issues in a well bounded architectural form.

Other features of the design include:

  • A sheltered rear deck to protect for those strong north easterly windy days.
  • A mix of Materials such as battened compressed fibre cement, weatherboard cladding and painted timber details
  • Raked ceilings to a counter lever study loft
  • Inside outside off form concrete bench with integrated sliding window
  • interior timber veneers

The house expresses a simple yet intelligent coastal response to its site and surrounding environment.
