Architecture by MIKE EDWARDS ARCHITECTURE seen at Private Residence, Yallingup, Yallingup - Yallingup House

Yallingup House

Item details

This architect designed home was completed in 2012. It is a large luxury home for a family consisting of a middle aged couple and four children of different ages. The project is located on a beautiful sloping site in the Millbrook Estate, Yallingup. The challenge was to design a spectacular weekender, short term luxury rental and future residence for a rural, steeply sloping, bush fire prone and high clay content site with its best views looking west.

We came up with an ultra simple, ultra minimal, elegant L- shaped plan that embraced the building envelope and physically locked in to and floated above the landscape.

Beautiful Intelligent & Enduring Solutions

Perth based contemporary architect, Mike Edwards is the founding partner of MIKE EDWARDS ARCHITECTURE, a proudly West Australian modern architecture practice. A commitment to listening to our clients and producing beautiful, clever, creative and practical architectural design solutions is what drives us - design solutions that respond to place, site, landform, orientation, climate and budget.

Our architecture carefully addresses each aspect of design from the small scale details, individual rooms and spaces, the inside and outside of each building, how our buildings fit into their street, neighbourhood, community and city. ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE AND SUSTAINABLE design principles are integral to our process.

Solar passive design, cross ventilation, natural light, use of appropriate construction methods and building materials have been integral to our design process since architecture school. Making the most of a challenging site or brief are challenges we love to take on and we have plenty of experience and success with those types of projects.

In fact, we delight in finding the 'hidden gold' of the creative and unexpected solutions uncovered in solving difficult problems. At Mike Edwards Architecture we strongly believe in the idea of 'SPIRIT OF PLACE' and that good architecture and design can capture and express the unique and distinctive essence of a particular location.
