The Emu Bay house, designed by Australian architect Max Pritchard is located on a hilltop overlooking beautiful Emu Bay on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Situated near Emu bay beach, the building currently houses Shangalia Holiday Home. Following is some words by the architect, “Panoramic sea views and wind protection were strong design determinants of this spectacular holiday home. Timber decked terraces either side of the living area provide outdoor seating options for different wind directions. The sheltered rear courtyard, framed by the building, large water tanks and timber screens focuses on a wood fired pizza oven. Corrugated color bond, timber windows, flooring and decking, reinforces the relaxed timeless holiday atmosphere whilst the floating roof form adds drama to the exposed site.”
