Baker Boys Beach House

This award winning house by Refresh Design is a surfers dream. Built on the North Stradbroke Island, in Australia, this holiday home embodies calmness and simplicity, so its occupants can enjoy being immersed in nature at the beach. Located in Minjerribah, which boasts some of the best surfing conditions in south-east Queensland, the unique cabin provides an experience more similar to a shelter, than spending the day inside a house. Located on a very steep slope, the back of the house is anchored to the ground, where it is well connected to the adjoining bushland reserve. The other end of the structure is cantilevered to take full advantage of the sweeping views, while providing covered space for car parking and storage facilities. The arrangement of rooms and openings ensures privacy while maximising access to views.
