Seascape Retreat

Seascape Retreat

A romantic beachside cottage is about right into a rock escarpment in a tiny boulder strewn South Pacific cove. It’s a shelter designed as a honeymoon retreat for paying visitors consisting of simply three rooms, a foyer, living/sleeping, and a bathroom.

This retreat is built utilizing all local materials and is constructed largely from rock quarried close to its site with in-situ poured concrete floors and an earth turfed roof. The structure is integrated into the escarpment above to protect occupants from falling particles. The cottage is self-sustainable in respect to on-site water harvesting and wastewater therapy. The project incorporated an extensive reforestation and re-vegetation sub-project.

Its plan is an interlocking geometry responding to each close to views of the Bay and far views out to Rocky Spires. It’s lined with horizontal macrocarpa wooden. This timber forms integrated joinery, wall, and ceiling panels behind double glazed low e-glass in a storm and shatterproof steel mullions which utilize earthquake-resistant sliding heads.
