Location: Hawley Beach, Tasmania, Australia
The Oasis House
This new residence is located on a private, internal block in the Coastal Tasmanian town of Hawley Beach. The site provides glimpses of views to the peaceful refuge of Narawntapu National Park and picturesque Hawley Beach. Situated less than 100 metres from the local beachfront, the site has been transformed into a private oasis, resembling one akin to the owner’s love of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
The building has a commanding presence, however the use of repetitive structural elements and multiple façade layers softens it’s otherwise large form. The shape of the building focuses on a welcoming, yet practical, and semantic entry from the internal driveway whilst wrapping itself around, providing a raised private courtyard.
The exterior materiality of the building uses natural limestone from South Australia on the ground floor to give the building solidity and texture. The upper floor is entirely clad with a metallic grey Alucobond, which subtly changes shades of colour during the day. These particular materials were chosen to be durable and low-maintenance and importantly, to withstand the coastal elements thrown at them.
To create a private oasis due to the internal block and lack of water views. The home had to be a 2 storey, that included bedrooms, guest room, multiple living rooms, a wine cellar, a home office, a workshop while outside incorporating a wetdeck pool, outdoor bbq pavilion and a separate garage.
Creating a private oasis in a suburban area.
The house was wrapped around the pool so that as you moved through the house the pool, pavilion and water feature would be the focus instead of the surrounding homes.
