Wings Way House, Australia

Flexibility and endurance were at the forefront of the family’s minds at Wings Way in Skene’s Creek. Having lost their original, much-loved family home to fire, they needed the replacement design to provide a sense of security and permanence that was missing from the 1970s fiber-cement clad home that preceded it.

The new house has been designed to meet stringent regulations both in relation to the very high threat of bushfire attack on the slopes and the steep site location and landslide risk. It also needed to withstand harsh weather conditions due to its highly exposed coastal location.

It was designed with two wings, a bedroom wing and a living wing, separated by a wide entrance linking the front and back. The separate nature of the plan suits the multi-generational family using it but also provides cellular protection from the prevailing fire threat trend.

Internally and externally, the walls are constructed of concrete block, standard gray block externally and polished block internally, providing the necessary BAL rating but also reducing the number of trades required on site in this difficult to access location.
