Located on the edge of a cliff, this house in Queenscliff, Australia, was presented to designers of Utz Sanby Architects . The total project area is 210 sq.m. and to implement it took 4 years.
At 100 meters above sea level, the house is literally hanging on the edge of the slope, and its angular architecture embodies ambition of the project. Disposition of residence is that the main living areas are the link between the garden and the ocean, and a private residence, as if flinging arms extended toward the ocean.
Concrete floors and stone walls are designed to store heat in the lower level. Floor heating allows you to adjust the temperature in the rooms in winter. Dark tiles in the living room floor absorbs heat and reduces glare from the ocean in the early morning. Well and high ceilings help ventilation. Tanks to store rain water for 5,000 liters give an additional resource for domestic use. Thus, this house is not just pleasing to the eye with their beauty, it also reflects a concern for the environment.
