Cooya Beach House
Cooya Beach House 1, QLD – Completed in 2007.
An enclosed courtyard plan, this project displays an intentionally brutal exterior of raw concrete masonry, breeze-wall and curious cantilever roof forms.
The courtyard focuses on a central pool surrounded by under-cover walkways & decks – literally outdoor corridors..
The house opens entirely onto the tropical garden framed courtyard – referencing Persian walled courtyard gardens – a secret garden.
The front facade concrete breeze-wall is purposely angled to meet the South-Easterly prevailing winds – providing constant airflow through the living spaces.
This house is progressive tropical living .
