A Calm And Meditative Australian Beach House [Video]

Set back from the beach, just beyond the privacy of a lush thicket, stands a modern beach house on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia. Created by Shaun Lockyer Architects, Arakoon is a commanding oceanfront house with three levels, which bed into the coastal dunes beside Noosa National Park. The stone and concrete home design was inspired by the ravines of Paradise Caves, Devil’s Kitchen and Lions Rock that lie to the north of the site. Rigid, narrow spaces are combined with openly sprawling spaces to create juxtaposition and heighten architectural experiences. Tactile, robust materials fit the context. Granite, weathered timber, and concrete spread from the exterior to the interior walls and floors, blurring boundaries.
