Location: Adelaide, South Australia

Spinifex House Adelaide Australia

At probably half the size of many houses that now line our metro beachfront, Spinifex House is like that new kid in the playground dwarfed by the surrounding bullish show-offs. Emulating the old shacks, she touches the ground lightly, respecting the dune and blurring the boundary to the adjacent reserve.

She deftly responds to the harsh and beautiful setting using an animated shell of corrugated iron as an integrated element to address entry, privacy, and protection, while ensuring dedicated frames to the gorgeous broad view of beach and sunset. Honest, tactile materials, efficient planning and connection to context offer a rich and cohesive living environment that captures the casual, relaxed feel of a holiday house.

Spinifex House is exemplary for Adelaide’s metro coast – a modest and counter-cultural leader who doesn’t need flex or fake tan.

The Brief:
A three bedroom family home. Contemporary design, warm and textured feel.

The Key Challenges:
Protecting the house and spaces from the harsh site conditions coming from the same direction as the gorgeous view. Noisy road. Tight site. Northern sun blocked by large neighbouring house.
