PASE CREATES STATEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY AND SEA

THE plan was to create the ultimate modern beach house to weather the test of time.

The clients undertook extensive research to develop an off-form concrete, minimalist home and approached Shane Denman Architects and Pase Building to deliver the dream beach house.

Pase Building's concrete house at Palm Beach has a Zen-like quality with its chromatic harmony and clean lines.

The home has a very large open-plan living area on the ground level which backs onto an expansive lawn. Landscaping is minimalistic, landmarks are two large palm trees at the front and rear, adding to the modern edge and Palm Beach appeal.

The building is 95 per cent off-form concrete, everything from its floors to walls, ceiling and stairs.

"The kitchen and island benches are also constructed from off-form concrete which involved extensive attention to detail," says Pase Building's director Gino Pase.

"Low-maintenance lighting was also a requirement, so brass downlights and solid LED strips were cast into the concrete soffits."

The ground floor of the home consists of an entry foyer, study, wine cellar, living, dining, laundry, powder room, shower room, kitchen with butler's pantry, and garage with workshop. The first floor houses six bedrooms, including the master suite and a separate 'kids zone' which includes a large bunk room and a rumpus room.

Pase Building was conscious to apply attention to detail in every area so the space wouldn't feel overwhelmingly large.

"Hanging pendants in the void are also eye-catching and work well to equalise the spaciousness of the area," says Gino.

Nature is intended to meet nurture at this property, with Pase Building being very deliberate to ensure the build will stand the test of time. The large pivot front door and garage doors are clad in copper sheeting, the eaves, gutters and downpipes are also copper, and the natural patina process has already started.
