Ryan House

Ocean Swell Roof

This site is about the sea and view. Bold and sensuous roof forms are evocative of ocean swells.

The steep slope and relationship of the site to the spectacular views has dictated the placing the location of the living areas at the upper level.

The dominant roof form and articulation of the plan form are strong enough to allow a simple and homogenous colour scheme.

Designed for a casual lifestyle, the key living areas are sited to make the best combination of sun and view.

The house has been designed as a house suitable for retirement. The clients were generous in the latitude they gave the design team to create a bold architectural statement on a difficult yet rewarding site.

The house is a statement of understated exuberance
