    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some ideas regarding a new PPOR that we're looking to build at a possible beachfront location. Our ideas center around the warehouse look (concrete walls, floors, timber, glass and totally open plan). My wife and I aren't interested in the 'homely' look. We prefer cold and industrial.

    Does anyone have any ideas regarding this style? I'm used to building 'regular' style houses in new estates however this is a deviation and new direction for us.

    Appreciate the advice.
    Al

    Anything outside of the "norm" usually means $$$, but considering its beachfront then I imagine you need to build something substantial! Good luck, interested in seeing your design.

    use marine grade stainless steel (to avoid salt issue)..

    wood, concrete and glass will go long way.

    may want to design reverse living home..

    Check out the Marcus Beach House by Bark Architects (I love everything about this home), Concrete House with Industrial Features by BAK (I like the interior of this one but not the exterior), and Blairgowrie Back Beach by Wolveridge.

    Get onto pinterest and do searches for things like "industrial beach concrete architecture" and prepare to waste hours.

    Look at as many old editions of Houses Magazine as you can find.

    Might not be industrial enough for you - not a lot of concrete - but I also love Under Pohutukawa by Herbst Architects.
