Situated on an exclusive residential street, with only one neighbouring property to the north, the site adjoins extensive park to the south and absolute beachfront to the east.  The residence successfully achieves its own oasis, by capturing beachfront vista and access whilst maintaining a private yet expansive pool and entertaining core. Save this picture!© Remco JansenThis residence is designed to accommodate a growing family, multiple guests and frequent entertaining.  Entry to the residence is via a recycled timber colonnade and gatehouse that grants covered access to both wings of the house. The street front facing wing accommodates guests generously with their own living area, kitchen and bathroom amenities, with a secondary stair linking to the main media, bar and games room below. Save this picture!© Remco JansenA wide glazed hallway wraps the central courtyard on both the ground and first floor giving scenic circulation past the main amenities whilst providing aesthetic flow, travelling the timber stair.  Privacy is ensured and natural light is made abundant as the open tread stair is backlight entirely by opaque glazing.  The centralised amenities assist easy access and circulation to ensure a well functioning home.  Louvred glazing has been utilised throughout the home to control ventilation by natural breezes.Save this picture!© Remco JansenTwenty five metres of glazing capture the absolute eastern beachfront of the property.  This expansive room is catered for by the marble and timber finished kitchen with chef’s scullery and abundant cold and dry storage behind.  Multiple dining and living areas are defined by furniture and finishes allowing a fully transformable space if the function so requires.  Entertaining the end of the room, a split faced sandstone wall is suspended over the flickering floor level fireplace, visually playing on weight and spatial elements. Save this picture!© Remco JansenThe upper level upholds all of the ground floor’s quality and design functionality and continues play with material and space.  All of the bedrooms afford beachfront orientation due to the broad width of the property, each with its own ensuite and walk in robe.  The private master suite boasts views both the beach and the internal courtyard, yet achieves an intimate aesthetic through finishes and textures.  Warm finishes and textures flow into the ensuite as the sandstone wall rises from the floor below to the angled glass skylight beared directly above the double shower. Running the length of the eastern façade, a sandstone tiled balcony allows the family to check weather conditions and enjoy the beach aspect throughout the day, consistently utilising indoor to outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© Remco JansenThe internal and external palette of finishes of natural timbers and stone cohesively create a tropical, modern and comfortable ambience.  External finishes of recycled timber,  natural stone, and copper allow the property to further develop character over time. Tall mature trees matching the scale of the house are intentionally located about the property to frame the beach front, the main entrance and internal courtyard.  Two palms boarder the swimming pool as the wet edge between graces the length of the timber colonnade softening polished concrete and rough stone finishes.  Lighting of the landscape at night creates drama within the timber battens and palm fronds, backed by the ambient aqua glow of the swimming pool.Project gallerySee allShow lessAD Round Up: Architecture in New ZealandRevisited’Wallcano’: Collider Activity Center Competition Entry / Zohar ArchitectsUnbuilt Project Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/349352/albatross-bgd-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBGD ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGold CoastHousesAustraliaPublished on March 26, 2013Cite: “Albatross / BGD Architects” 26 Mar 2013.

Out of the Seller’s Market, Into the Buyer’s Market

first_img  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport. A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Related Articles February marked a transition from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market, according to recent data from RE/MAX. According to the RE/MAX National Housing Report, declining sales and growing inventory have pushed the market forward for buyers.February’s 4.2 percent downturn was the smallest since August 2o18, as home sales have declined year-over-year for seven consecutive months. Meanwhile, inventory grew by 5.8 percent in February year over year, the fifth consecutive month of year over year growth. Month over month, February saw more homes sold than in January, up by 10.2 percent.“Trends of five months or more often indicate significant shifts, and the year-over-year trends in declining sales and rising inventory have both reached that length now,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “It’s interesting to see the slowing sales and growing inventories that benefit buyers and at the same time the record prices that benefit sellers. The big picture supports an ongoing return to more balanced conditions.”Additionally, the report states that in February, the median sales price increased to $240,000, up 5.5 percent year over year, and a February record. The metro areas with the lowest days on market were Omaha, Nebraska at 34, San Francisco at 37, and a two-way tie between Denver and San Diego at 42. The highest days on market averages were in Augusta, Maine at 120, Trenton, New Jersey at 113, and Hartford, Connecticut at 96.“The next few months will determine whether the shift brings a wave of buyers into the market for the spring selling season. Members of our network are reporting high local demand along with a need for even more inventory. The optimism for a solid spring exists – and a more balanced market certainly contributes to it.”The average days on the market for homes sold in February was up four days month over month, up to 63, a one day year over year gain.
