NARROW NECK HOUSE

 
 

NARROW NECK HOUSE

Two dwelling units and a studio allow for a variety of occupancies. The site is an elevated beach side section on a busy road with great views over the harbour. The concrete walls of the house associate with the old concrete fortifications along the coastline. They are covered with creeper. Plastic roofs, like wings, give privacy and protection. The traditional verandah is now a roof terrace, hedged and roofed, to take in the views. A separate Studio is the folly – a diminutive house for guests and work.
