The building I chose is called the Stanwell Park House. It is designed by Casey Brown Architecture. Their team is made up of eight members who all work together to create contemporary and organic architectural structures. The ideas for their buildings are inspired by climate, topography, and lifestyle. This particular building is in influenced by its topography and the modern Australian beach side lifestyle. It is located south of Sydney and provides both north and east views over Stanwell Park Beach and the Pacific Ocean. It consists of three pavilions made of local stone, timber, and copper and follows an overall open plan. The materials are chosen to withstand the beach side location and to visually recede into the landscape. The many levels of the building are a response to the steep site and although the plan is fairly open, it still provides privacy. The Stanwell Park House is designed for both entertaining and family holidays. I chose the Stanwell Park House because I really like the style of the building and it has several different architectural elements that make it interesting to look at. Casey Brown Architecture has other architectural buildings that follow their contemporary design that is both inspiring and beautiful.
