SJB Architects complete St Andrews Beach House in Australia 

The St Andrews Beach House is a series of glass, copper and timber-clad suspended boxes, gradually stepping down and hugging the site. The dwelling is separated into two primary levels with the sleeping areas tucked under the living areas. The main living space has been treated as a pavilion with glazing on all 4 sides, opening onto a terrace which links directly with external stairs. The stepped composition and structural system adopted ensured limited excavation and minimised site disturbance. The entire construction is supported on approximately 30 steel columns directly connected to screw piles. This ensured that the least number of established tea-trees were removed or damaged during construction.
