Richard Henry House
Coolum (address confirmed when booking secured)
2017 - Regional Commendation - AIA National Architecture Awards
Richard Henry is a 'new-century modernist tree house' on a secluded site surrounded by dense coastal forest. Dark metal cladding and white render present a collection of bold contrasting forms, with an angular floor plan strongly referencing the iconic Mount Coolum and soaring floor levels to provide exquisite views over the treetops to the coastline.
Notable design features include bold steel V-shaped legs and cantilevered forms, frameless clearstory glass, hidden pocket sliding glass doors, a built in day bed with spectacular views, rich joinery of dark timber tones, smoky glass and Australian granite, and custom engineered garage doors which are integrated seamlessly in the exterior facade.
A unique swimming pool perched above ground and free from conventional pool fencing is hidden behind the house and provides a luxurious focal point from which to take in the natural beauty of the site.
There is a passenger lift providing wheelchair access between the lower and upper floors where the main living areas and views can be experienced.
