Nestled on the Australian coast, Waitpinga House is a perfect holiday family house. It was designed by Mountford Williamson Architecture to present the casual and informal lifestyle but also the beautiful natural surrounding. With its own power, water and waste management, this sustainable house allows you to live off the grid.
Waitpinga House is surrounded by trees and has a wonderful ocean view. The simple form uses materials like galvanized steel, fibre cement and hardwood. The opened hallway separates the home from the guest rooms and creates a breezeway as well as a place for social gatherings. The doors can be opened and closed, so that area can serve both as a verandah or a sunroom.
The interior of Waitpinga House features wooden floors and elements, nicely combined with grey and metallic furniture and tiles. It can fit a larger group of friends or family. “The house is built close to the edge of the bushland without disturbing it, avoiding earthworks by building off the ground and leaving the natural topography intact.” architects explained.
