A stunning example of form meets function, designed by Peter Stutchbury, The Wing House in New South Wales, Australia, is perched over Wategos Beach and backed by the beautiful Byron Bay Lighthouse Reserve. This culmination of engineering and architectural genius, listed on Unique Estates for a cool $7,000,000, is a combination of steel, timber, concrete & glass set over two levels with a ’wing-span’ roof of 27.5 meters.
Aside from making a striking statement, the ‘winged’ roof provides extra shelter over the outdoor areas, as well as filtering the bright Australian sunlight to the rooms within.
The 4 bedroomed home has a lower level guest suite that includes a kitchen and living space, plus a generous deck outside of the en suite sleeping quarters. Across from here, another bedroom can be found beyond the central garden and courtyard that is utilized as a home gymnasium. After a work out, a nice relaxing soak will ease the muscles in an outdoor bath tub.
A 22 meter lap pool is visible from the large kitchen, where a timber island forms a stylish centrepiece. Beyond the kitchen, an mezzanine level holds a home office, which also incorporates a handy sleep space, that is accessed via a step ladder.
The upstairs of the main home is designed to appear as a number of timber boxes, where a large timber door reveals a lofty open plan space with curved ceilings 7 meters high above. Views of the ocean can be relished from this elevated location, whilst kicking back in a sophisticated yet serenely uncomplicated interior.
A spacious deck runs off the living area, providing a great place for entertaining guests, enjoying an al fresco meal, lounging under the sun and following around to the swimming pool for a refreshing dip.
The glazed walls of the building create a smooth indoor-outdoor connection.
