Award winning Cairns builder
100 Marine Parade, Newell Beach

100 Marine Parade, Newell Beach is the first renovation in a series of One Team Dream Homes created by Field Homes

The design intent for the existing beach cottage was to create tropical architecture and provide a level of refined luxury while maintaining a home that portrayed a blend of the special 1960s quaint beach shack. The architect has ensured a strong marriage exists between the architectural intent of the building and the surrounding landscape/seascape: capturing the views and breezes. Well planned tropical landscaping and the use of timber elements, plus glass louvers at the street facade provide the articulation and privacy needed for street allotments.

An open plan living, dining and gourmet kitchen area is perfect for larger families. Large glass sliding doors lead to external timber decks, one with beach frontage and one to the rear gardens. The house is located on a 15-meter-wide street frontage, 600 square metre allotment. This is typical of most sites along Marine Parade.

This beach house represents an environmentally sustainable design (reusing the existing septic system, and timber studs, joists, battens and bearers wherever possible), and is a contemporary quality build, with state of the art fitments. The concept was founded on a respect for the existing 1960s house, keeping it mainly 'as is' structurally and reusing all timber framework where possible.

The internal linings and ceilings were removed. The existing timber stud walls were re-used where possible and the existing bathroom was removed due to structural failure of floor members. The existing kitchen joinery was reused and incorporated into the new gourmet kitchen. The existing roof framing was re-used and extended to cover a new external rear deck, new roof sheeting, flashing and gutters were utilised. The existing external wall cladding was reused with new polyurethane cover strips where required to the patched external cladding. The existing concrete masonry rendered wall to the street entry was raised with timber hardwood columns to support the raised and reused skillion roof to entry.
