Castle’s on Kingscliff

Castle’s on Kingscliff’ was perceived as a landmark perched on the crest of Kingscliff Hill enjoying 360 degree views.

The site informed an eclectic composition of architectural forms. Inspired by a giant nautilus shell, the concept centres around a sculptural helical staircase connecting three levels of living including a one bedroom ‘apartment’ on the first floor for the retired owners, a ‘hose-out holiday home’ for family on the ground floor and a shared ‘observatory / bar’ on the third level. By night ‘the lantern’ stair shields the home from the headlights of a busy intersection and by day the timber battened sculpture shelters the home from the afternoon sun. Copper blade walls are angled to reflect the afternoon sun, frame ocean views and provide privacy from the neighbours. The landscape views of the Border Ranges and Kingscliff Beach are framed by the clean white picture-box of the first-floor living room.
