Albatross Residence

by Bayden Goddard Design Architects
Albatross Residence Bayden Goddard Design Architects

Situated on an exclusive residential street, the site adjoins extensive park to the south and absolute beachfront to the east. The residence successfully achieves its own oasis, by capturing beachfront vista and access whilst maintaining a private yet expansive pool and entertaining core. It is designed to accommodate a growing family, multiple guests and frequent entertaining.
Entry to the residence is via a recycled timber colonnade and gatehouse that grants covered access to both wings of the house. A glazed hallway wraps the central courtyard on both the ground and first floor giving scenic circulation past the main amenities whilst providing aesthetic flow, travelling the timber stair. Privacy is ensured and natural light is made abundant as the open tread stair is backlight entirely by opaque glazing.
Louvered glazing has been utilised throughout the home to control ventilation by natural breezes.
The internal and external palette of finishes of natural timbers and stone cohesively create a tropical, modern and comfortable ambience. External finishes of recycled timber, natural stone, and copper allow the property to further develop character over time. Tall mature trees matching the scale of the house are intentionally located about the property to frame the beach front, the main entrance and internal courtyard. Lighting of the landscape at night creates drama within the timber battens and palm fronds, backed by the ambient aqua glow of the swimming pool.
