Architecture Design of Oystercatcher House

Description About The Project

Oystercatcher House designed by MCK Architecture & Interiors, as a replacement dwelling for a beloved site, the house expands on an already established connection to place and an appreciation of the natural offering. Indeed, the designer ensures a continued legacy remains between its owners and the surrounds and, through a simplified and open approach, the form engages the elements.

In matching the casual lifestyle of its location in Callala Beach, this house sees the reimagining of a dwelling, embedding references to surrounding intricacies. As a replacement for the original home, the proposal combines the owners’ love of the area and an understanding of the climate. In its beachfront siting, the new form sits openly connected towards the ocean, acting as a place of connection yet retreat from the elements.

On the other hand, the project features several courtyard spaces that provide inner protective outdoor areas. Also, increasing access to natural ventilation and sunlight across the seasons. Besides, allow the form to open and engage with incoming winds and solar gains ensures a reduced reliance on energy. Whilst also allow the home to be immersed in the experiential elements of the natural surrounds.

Once insides, the living areas such as living room, dining room and kitchen designed with open plan to get the stunning of nature. Hence, it embodies an effortless through materiality, highlight the intentional wearing in place whilst being able to be opened to engage the landscape. Aim to accommodate fluctuating visitors throughout the year, MCK Architects ensures the resulting home is robust yet inviting. Also, produce a restful experience among the stunning landscape.

The design of this Oystercatcher House response was to retain the open, exposed, and windswept nature of the site. And to allow the envelope of the house to provide privacy, security, and protection from the elements, literally the house as a fence.

Text by the Architects: For some years a Sydney-based family had enjoyed their holidays in a tiny pre-fabricated house on the beachfront lot but had finally outgrown it. They wanted to improve the accommodation and take better advantage of the opportunities of the location and aspect while retaining a relaxed, simple pattern of inhabiting the site.
