Coolum Bays Beach House in Queensland, Australia, is an exquisite work of Aboda Design Group. Right next to the ocean, enjoying stunning views and facing the destructive weather, at the same time, the house mixes modern and refined elements as the client asked, along with strong, durable materials, like cement cladding, concrete, hard wood, aluminum, steel or porcelain tiles, due to the tricky coastal weather.
It’s a family home, built to fulfill each of the members’ needs and personality. In the winter, the concrete walls retain the heat, while in the summer it is excluded. Taking advantage of what the surroundings offer, playing with open spaces and well placed large operable windows and doors, there’s no need for air conditioning, as a natural ventilation it is made.
Other sustainable elements are the tank below the pool storing collected rainwater from the rooftops and a photovoltaic system.
