Replacement of a 1960’s bach situated behind the dunes and in the coastal hazard zone. Retaining the existing concrete floor meant the new building was kept low and better fitted the location. The adaptive reuse also allowed along with better passive solar performance and 

The old bach with its simple open plan, mono pitched roofs and white vertical cladding was used a design source for the new split level permanent home.

The challenge was to orientate all to both sun and view whilst maintaining privacy, provide a sheltered entrance and a covered access to to garage, audio, laundry and outside shower.
