Opito Bay House

Opito Bay House

A carefully crafted response to a challenging site, the Opito Beach house makes the most of its dramatic coastal position. The butterfly roof to the living level ensures views are captured while maintaining privacy. 

Highlight windows frame the ridgeline to the southeast, and full-height glazing to the north is set back from the edge of the house to provide privacy from within, without compromising the expansive views. The ceilings are acoustically treated in slotted plywood panels. Materials are recessive and generally natural, in the palette of browns and greys, concrete and timber with limited use of steel and hard surfaces.
