Shark Alley

Shark Alley is a family retreat, a robust structure able to hold its own against the rugged coast, capturing the aspect whilst providing comfortable shelter from hostile elements. With the harsh weather coming from the sea, the windward side can provide shelter whilst leaving the leeward side open for access to the outdoor courtyard.

Project Details: Internal floor area approximately 250sq.m. Construction was completed end of 2004. Tim Hay and Jeff Fearon are the design architects. Photography is by Patrick Reynolds.
