Depot Beach House by Stutchbury and Pape
22 Feb

Depot Beach House,
Depot Beach, NSW (near Bateman’s Bay)
Completed 2007

Following the tradition of the Australian beach shack, this replacement ‘shack’ amplifies the notion of “holiday” as did its predecessors. Materials are similar, the kids bunk house is provided, a big games room and lots of area for outside living. A large moving sunshade allows the sun into the house in winter. A large elevated living / cooking environment can reasonably accommodate up to 22 people. The building is passive solar with good thermal mass for storage of heat in winter and ‘coolth’ in summer. A flexible, polite, provocative structure whose patterns originate from the freedom of a real holiday cottage.
