Completed in 2018, the Omaha house overlooks the estuary facing west. An awkward shaped site and the desire to connect the occupants with the stunning water surrounds led to a three-formed or winged structure connected with glazed hallways.
"The design brief was also for a low-maintenance and durable/solid form in both practicality and to last in its coastal and windy locale. Abodo's heat treated (thermally modified) pine was chosen over cedar (which the client knew from a past house meant a lot of re-oiling maintenance)." says Jessica Wright, Architectural Designer at Studio Kayser.
The Sioo:x coating is inspired by nature, and weathers to a beautiful silvery grey which can last up to ten years.
Being predominantly westerly-facing the decks and gardens connecting or between the three structures offer sheltered spaces to enjoy depending on the weather / winds which can blow in from the east or west.
