The Currumundi Beach House Uses Contrasting Substances

Tin roofs are not something normally associated with a luxurious beach house located in Australia, but that is exactly the type of material used for the Currumundi Beach House by Loucas Zahos Architects. While everything closer to the ground floor screams opulence, the roof has more of a toned-down aesthetic.

However, this contrasting works well with the house, as it adds a bit of pizzazz and something that's different than most designs in the area. Considering it's a beach house, the architects put in floor to ceiling windows to for allowing ample sunlight to shine through at all hours of the day. Even if one isn't outside, visitors and residences alike still feel connected to that outside world just beyond the glass.
