The Ocean strips it back to the necessities, demonstrating how smaller homes can still be liveable, spacious and sustainable.
This single-storey home boasts four spacious bedrooms finished with beautiful polished concrete seeded with white quartz, also aiding in the production of thermal mass. The polished concrete pours out to the rumpus room, this area has retractable sliding doors creating the ultimate space for a retreat from the main living.
The kitchen, living and dining areas have been combined into an open layout, framed an expanse of sliding doors that seamlessly transition to the exterior under-roof timber deck. With the thoughtful placement of these doors and large windows in the kitchen, natural light from the sun can softly penetrate the space and cooling breezes flow throughout the home effortlessly.
Ultimately these sustainable principles minimise the need for mechanical lighting and temperature controls, which in turn reduces economic costs. The pitch of the gable ceiling further encourages air ventilation and contributes to emphasising the rustic aesthetic The Elements range is recognised for.
The Ocean houses the ideal layout to comfort the lifestyle of a growing family while incorporating features to sustain comfort and functionality within the space of this home.
The most special design intent of The Ocean is that it is a home that connects and embodies the natural elements of mother nature; fire, water, wind, earth.
