Beautiful Bech House Design with Five Separate Wings, designed by Pete Bossley Architects. On a waterfront site in the Bay of Islands, five separate wings are located to reinforce the natural typography and create a sense of community around the central living area. Three of the wings are cut deep into the hillside: one of them has the pasture rolling across the roof. The central wing is identified by the elegant curves of a hyperbolic parabaloid roof which floats over the multiple living areas.

Omaha Beach House, Holiday House was designed by Pete Bossley Architects, located in Omaha Beach. Materials were chosen to offer a sense of directness: concrete floor, pre-cast concrete wall panels, anodized aluminium joinery and louvres, stained plywood panels. The way natural light enters the house becomes important to enliven the materials and spaces, whether directly through the large upper level glazing, dappled by the adjustable louvres or timber screen, or through the milky white translucent glass around the dining area. A heightened awareness of shifting weather patterns arises from the play of light and cloud shadow on the interior surfaces.
Devil’s Lake Residence, Contemporary Beach House was designed by Nathan Good Architect. Privacy was a key consideration for this waterfront home overlooking Devil’s Lake near Lincoln City, Oregon. The owners requested a residence that combined their preferences for both agrarian and contemporary design. The design solution incorporated a small building footprint and created a comfortable, light-filled home through maximized daylighting and carefully selected views. Green features include hydronic radiant-heated floors; energy efficient lighting, controls and appliances; natural cross ventilation design; non-toxic materials; a central vacuum system for enhanced indoor air quality; sustainably harvested Lyptus for cabinetry, and polished concrete floors.
Baja Residence, Beach House was designed by Nathan Good Architect. Staggered roofs shade the home’s interior from direct sun while facilitating natural light and cross-ventilation. Design features include a partially covered sunroof over the master bedroom that affords outstanding views of the Sea of Cortez, a covered outdoor dining room, and an extensive trellis along the home’s south side. The residence generates 100 percent of its electricity through renewable sources and rainwater is harvested and reused on site.
