Pole Home Construction

Feature Project

Pole Home

Wanting a modern yet contemporary home, nestled within coastal rainforest and walking distance to the beach, the building was designed to merge with the environment.

Requirements included open living spaces with connection to both the kitchen and the outdoor living areas, which merge the exterior with the interior. In terms of layout, the house consists of two levels - ground floor level with open living area, adjoining lounge, dining room and kitchen with massive bi-fold doors that open up the entire area and allow access to a versatile outdoor entertaining and leisure area with sun-drenched living space harmonising perfectly with the outdoors.

Ben Metcalfe says adapting the walls and curved beams into the internally exposed poles was his biggest challenge. "Basically, we had to build the home around the poles and nothing is straight in nature; they twist and bend in different ways. Also, bearers and the flooring had to be cut in around the poles."

The largest grey iron bark pole was 11 m high and 300mm in diameter at the base. All poles were sandblasted to restore their natural colour for a weathered effect .. "like timber you find on the beach," Kyleigh said.
