The leafy suburb of Bateau Bay situated on the Central Coast is home to this unique residence. The Tank House fits its environment beautifully with the wonderful use of composite materials.
The colours encapsulate the surrounding trees, and the use of stone and hardwood gives the home the strength to live a long life in this environment. Clever zoning gives a small home the feel of space without losing individual privacy.
Though a contemporary design, this home still has the feeling of a cosy home.
The large expanse of northern louver and fixed windows brings the outside in, with natural sunlight, fresh air and leafy views.
A mix of old and new in both design and materials.
