Home Design Sunshine Coast
Once you are living in your dream house by the sea, the breeze blowing straight through and glorious views framed by panoramic plate-glass windows, you can do all sorts of creative and clever things by yourself with driftwood and seashells, sand and rope, candles and mirrors.
Louis Kahn said “Every building must have… its own soul.”
But first you have to build your house — and it must be exactly what you have always wanted, despite any budget and plot constraints. That is what Beachside Construction (Qld) excels at: planning and building the house — or extension or renovation or even something mid-built — consulting with you and taking into consideration all your specifications, ideas and objectives as well as adding practicalities like storm proofing. Of course there are always some compromises to be made, but Beachside Construction (Qld) can make sure that you hardly even notice those. We discuss everything with you and then custom build so that there is forethought at every stage of the design of the project. Each of your concepts and objectives will be taken into account as well as our own principles of designing with light as well as form and mass.
Rem Koolhaas said: “Architects work in two ways. One is to respond precisely to a client’s needs or demands. Another is to look at what the client asks and reinterpret it.”
It is always challenging to find materials that are available straight away if you have a strict deadline. And to put casual and glamorous together, because a home by the sea needs to be practical, sturdy and hard-wearing — don’t forget, you have to make allowances for all the sand and salt air. Exposing the structure where possible may bring the price down, as well as taking advantage of locally sourced products, and choosing relatively simple finishes. Inexpensive glass and porcelain tiles can look wonderful.
Renzo Piano said: “Architects have to dream. We have to search for our Atlantises, to be explorers, adventurers, and yet to build responsibly and well.”
Whether you want an organic house that blends in with the Sunshine Coast landscape or a stark contrast, to integrate every room with the outdoors or to concentrate on safety for small children and the elderly, your own house will be an anchor for the whole family, and that is just what Beachside Construction (Qld) will build for you.
