Stewart House

Stewart House is a minimalist house located in Whale Beach, Sydney, designed by Chenchow Little Architects. The Stewart House is located in Palm Beach on a ridge overlooking McKay Reserve within a bushfire 'Flame Zone'. The stringent requirements of the bushfire code necessitated the use of bushfire shutters, non-combustible building materials and a fire-rated roof. The house is single storey and split level, and comprises a series of textured rectilinear volumes that step down the sloping site. (12)

Stewart House is a minimalist house located in Whale Beach, Sydney, designed by Chenchow Little Architects. The Stewart House is located in Palm Beach on a ridge overlooking McKay Reserve within a bushfire ‘Flame Zone’. The stringent requirements of the bushfire code necessitated the use of bushfire shutters, non-combustible building materials and a fire-rated roof. The house is single storey and split level, and comprises a series of textured rectilinear volumes that step down the sloping site.

The scale and planning of the dwelling is deliberately restrained, in resistance to the large scale single housing form typical of the locality. The walls of the volumes and pool are constructed entirely of fire-resistant brick. The face brick walls incorporate horizontal bands of 50mm bricks and ‘hit and miss’ screening to external courtyards and terraces.
