Solar Residence and landscape, Cottesloe Greg Hunt 1991 - 3:
Landmarc Consultancy/Gérard Siero & Associates Pty Ltd Architects

The elevated site is 300m from the Indian Ocean and has extensive westerly ocean views. Design for climate in a west facing coastal environment, we developed a concept for obtaining views and welcoming winter sun into
living areas.

The solar designed house and garden comprises 3 indoor and two outdoor Living Areas, Kitchen, formal Dining, Master Bedroom, Child′s Bedroom, Guest Bedroom, a Loft Study, Attic Bedroom, Garage, Service areas and a Plantroom. The wide corrugated stainless steel roof, in the form of a stingray, shields the glazing from the sun. Angled walls in the westerly living spaces provide ocean views from every part of these spaces while minimising hot summer afternoon sun exposure. Balconies and bay windows provide additional lookouts to the coast and over landscaped gardens and moon-gazing platform set in a reflective pool that helps direct winter sun into the house. Landscape architecture with Steve Davies creates "outdoor rooms" in the garden, organised around a pool, while planting was designed to assist with micro-climate using a coastal conditions adapted, "water-wise" palette.
