“Nestled into the side of a hill with sweeping views to the Darling Range, catching the sea breezes from the south-west stands this unique house. The challenging triangular 693m2 block with a 4m gradient and 183m easement presented challenges that ultimately pushed the boundaries resulting in an extraordinary modern-rustic north facing 3 level home. Land use was maximised by taking advantage of the easement and slope to dig the garage and workshop into the hillside. The difficulty of this exercise confirmed by the 2018 MBA award for Excellence in Construction on a Challenging Site.
Featuring open plan living with jarrah timber floors from the family farm on the ground floor and stairwell with a feature double glazed window the length of 1½ levels. Marri cabinetry, also from the family farm, mixed with stone and laminex that gives the home soul whilst complimenting the polished concrete floor finish on the first floor.
Energy considerations include climate controlled vergolas, functional and artistically designed Corten coloured screens to the west and east that can shelter or expose the glass to the sun’s rays, sliding cavity walls that create zones for heating and cooling, sliding cavity glass walls on the first-floor living creating seamless transitions from living to the expansive balconies. Further environmental considerations are the 28,000 litre water tank and 5kw solar panels.
The ground floor living looks out to a copper water feature and pond, down the expansive steps, across the cobblestones to the northern facing gardens surrounded with Corten coloured vertically louvered and rendered panels.
This project honours Veen’s Design Groups skill in design of this modern-rustic home in ‘old’ Bunbury that sympathises with the suburb yet stands proud in its surrounds.
Veen’s Design Group excelled in executing the design brief for this challenging site with an 8-metre gradient on a beach sand dune overlooking the ocean at the seaside town of Binningup. The owner wanted to maximise the ocean views & sea breezes with expansive glass windows to all living rooms and bedrooms. Situated on the coast a short walk to the beach can prove relentless on building materials. The owner wanted a feature set down slab for light to feature pebbles at the entrance and bathrooms. This provided the perfect opportunity to mix the exterior materials of raw off-form concrete with face brick that require absolutely no maintenance and can take the brunt of the winds, sun and salt.
Set only 1.5metre to the rear of the block Veen’s designed an undercroft for the garage that lifted the 2 storeys and then offset the 2 levels giving sweeping views from all the bedrooms and living areas to maximise the ocean views. With the alfresco and terrace and living opening to outdoors, the kitchen is the hub which affords uninterrupted connectivity. The master bedroom is located on the same level to the south-west catching the sea breezes. The first floor can be opened for visitors.
The mix of off-form concrete internal walls meeting the lightly polished concrete floors throughout teamed with cabinetry made from warm timbers and simple white kitchen cabinetry give this home a minimalistic beach house feel with an excellence sense of function and form.

A second storey heritage home was cleverly designed whilst complimenting the existing front facade in line with heritage regulations
