Falcon Beach House by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects

The Falcon Beach House is a contemporary residence designed by  in Falcon, a suburb in the coastal city of Mandurah in Australia.
Its design challenges the inappropriate approach of destroying native landscapes and topography. The upper level is neutral for the purpose of acting as a backdrop that focuses the attention on the vast Indian Ocean while the lower level is darker.

Falcon Beach House sits opposite Gearies surf break 1 hour south of Perth. A dip in the dune is echoed by a subtle dip in the balustrade creating a direct connection to the passing surfer.

Based on the rapidly disappearing Mandurah beach house a robust black brick base supports a restrained white Colorbond sheeting skin. The floor is a thin zone of grey, burnished concrete and grey recycled plastic decking.

Everything below the main house level is black, everything above is white and a thin grey zone challenges the concept that everything is black and white.

A wrapping double skin polycarbonate wall provides protection from the elements and provides privacy to occupants, at night this glows to announce the project to the street and ocean.
