The conditions of the House of Coogee constricted the creation of it’s design. Designed by MaSQ Architecture, the length faces east to view the ocean while the taper area slopes sharply across the width. Wedding Cake Island and the southeast’s adjacent views need to be preserved. The walls lean in and ascent at the upper level to allow this to happen. This area includes contemporary and classic housing so the oblique geometry develops a form that makes it just right for this area. House of Coogee has the ability to change the viewers perception relying on where they’re looking.

The critical passive environmental features of this design are it’s impressive thermal mass mixed together with cross ventilation and orientation to the north east. There is no exposure to the west because the space controls light through the blinds and the curtains.  The South Coogee house is extraordinary. It exemplifies how the instituted notion of the street front is unimportant within its disparate surroundings and how an atypical building form can sit comfortably within its environment.
House at Coogee is a haven; it is concrete and sturdy as it can stand against the strong conditions of its environment. It’s an enrichment for anyone living there because of it’s ease to go from dark, bright, cool, or warm where it answers well to the season’s needs and situates with the natural environment.
