Crowther, Philip (2005) Beach House. [Design/Architectural Work]
This research investigation is framed within an architectural design and construction project. The project is for a two-story house extension of approximately 54m2, timber-framed, low-tech construction. While required documentation for certification and engineering compliances was prepared, ‘full’ documentation to the standard of a contemporary architecture project was not produced before construction was commenced. The project proceeded through construction on the basis of architectural supervision (on site) determining construction detailing through dialogue with the self-builder. Design inspiration came from vernacular traditions of ‘Beach house’ construction; taking its lead from a make-do attitude to material use and detailing.
