Residential Architecture: Emu Bay House by Max Pritchard Architect: “..With an exposed site of sweeping views, the clients required a relaxed holiday home that maximizes views, but provided sheltered outdoor areas..Built Form: The living area, with its dominant floating “lid” roof, emphasizes the drama of the exposed site. Two bedroom wings radiate from this core, and enclose a rear sheltered courtyard focusing on a wood fired pizza oven. Indented timber decks, either side of the living area, provide other options for sheltered outdoor living, with the choice dictated by wind direction..The building is elevated a meter above the ground to maximize the view and reinforce the dramatic form..Sustainability: Double glazing and high performance glass, cross ventilation and fans for cooling and a highly efficient combustion heater for heating, minimize energy use. Hot water is from an efficient electric heat pump..”  Outstanding views, extensive glazing, abundant natural light; interesting interior volumes; indoor / outdoor sensibility..
