The Byron Bay House by Architectus is set in the picturesque Byron Bay Hinterland. The living areas are upstairs, which enables the occupants to capture views of the surrounding countryside and ocean in the distance from the main living areas including the huge balcony. The use of glass means there are views from everywhere bringing the outside in. The extensive use of timber, in a variety of forms, borrows nicely from its environment and means the house does not seem out of place in its rural setting. It is an exceptional house in an equally exceptional and peaceful location.
