AC-CA (Architectural Competition Concours d'Architecture) The Winner has been announced for (SYDNEY) a competition to design a holiday home overlooking the Bondi Beach waterfront in Sydney using discarded shipping containers.
The competition required a design that integrated function, structure and the ‘spirit of the waterfront home’, while generating discussion about the potential uses of freight containers.
Competition Winner Ales Javurek's proposed house sits on the steep western hillside of a headland offering panoramic views of Bondi Beach and the ocean. his house features horizontal wooden slabs which are supported by slight columns. These timber planes juxtapose with the shipping containers – metal boxes fabricated from slow rusting steel, and used to define living spaces.
