The architecture of 6 Leadwood Loop was designed in accordance with Feng Shui principles. The square geometry of the floor plan is aligned with the cardinal axis. The shape, position and orientation of all the spaces and bodies of water were guided by Feng Shui protocols.Save this picture!© Grant PitcherCharacteristics like elemental roof forms with large eaves, overhanging upper storey, play of light and shade, screening, flow of spaces including an uninterupted indoor / outdoor flow and lush landscaping are all hallmarks of Tropical Modern architecture.Save this picture!SectionThe house is a layered composition of individually expressed horizontal elements. The offshutter concrete and glass ground floor level is articulated from the timber clad first floor level by means of the cantilevered first floor plate, and the angled cantilevered ground floor terrace projects out over the timber and stone lower floor level. Subdivisions in the timber doors and windows reinforce the horizontal lines of the architecture. The building culminates in the bold form of the pyramid roof with a two metre overhang, splayed timber eaves brackets and T&G eaves closer.Save this picture!© Grant PitcherSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Grant PitcherSave this picture!1st Floor PlanThe site offers exceptional panaramic sea views from the north east through to the south east. The rim flow swimming pool with a natural stone waterfall feature and sundeck have been placed on the north side of the house, enjoying warm sunlight throughout the day, but at the same time being significantly shielded from the prevailing winds coming off the ocean. An al fresco sitting area and shallow reflective pond adorn the east facing terrace, providing a tranquil area to linger and enjoy the natural splendour of the Indian Ocean.Save this picture!© Grant PitcherThe double volume space positioned centrally at the heart of the home acts as a hub that the other spaces radiate out from.Save this picture!© Grant PitcherThe large open plan main bedroom suite integrates a luxurious lounge and an open plan ensuite bathroom and dressing area into one seamless space. Expansive sliding doors and windows along the east and south edges of this space open up to take full advantage of the sea views.Save this picture!© Grant PitcherProject gallerySee allShow lessRicard Camarena Restaurant / Francesc Rifé StudioSelected ProjectsLaboratory for Shihlien Biotech Salt Plant / WZWX Architecture GroupSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/878540/6-leadwood-loop-metropole-architects Clipboard 6 Leadwood Loop / Metropole Architects
