Fraser McAlpine Design - Brilliant Building Designs in Dunsborough, Western Australia

A+ R A-

Absolute beachfront, Old Dunsborough. With building height restrictions and local planning policy guidelines to contend with, this home is the end result of a close collaboration between clients, designer & builder.

With the waters edge only metres away extensive retaining and brick-up were considered to deal with winter storms surges and to aid privacy from the beachfront cycle path.

The open plan Living & Alfresco face East to the ocean. Roof cover to this area was calculated & sun studies done to ensure protection from mid-morning Summer sun. A North facing private courtyard provides Winter sun access to the Dining Room.

The Upper floor is lightweight construction & self contained with 2 bedrooms, Bathrooms & Kitchenette. Scyon Linea weatherboards & reverse brick veneer feature walls along with rendered masonry & honed concrete form the external building fabric.
