Mermaid Beach House

The goal of the Mermaid Beach House was to contrast with the mind set of ostentatious living on the Gold Coast and provide a building that expressed an ethos of timelessness and simplicity. After the existing building was pared back to a skeleton, new and recycled timber formed the base element to link the 'front' and 'rear' sections of the existing house together via a central courtyard complete with fireplace and plunge pool. Large timber members create a sculptural element on the seaside which delineates the address from neighbouring properties.
