Ruby Bay House

This is a small-medium 3-bedroom house sitting along a southward sloping hill, looking east across Tasman Bay. 

A ‘T’ shaped plan is wrapped around a northwest-facing courtyard allowing views through the house to the sea. The property is a generous size and there is opportunity for the owners to flesh out the gardens, and to further add pergolas and verandas to the east and west sides to soften and shade outdoor spaces.

There are 4 distinct elevations to the house defined by the roofing material wrapping down both the north and south elevations. These are without windows to provide privacy from the road, the neighbour to the north and give the house a simple sculptural quality.  The location of windows focuses the view to the sea to the east and the mountains and hills to the west.
