Collaboration and artistic expression were encouraged by the client at the Eternity Beach House. Tucked in behind the dunes of Byron Bay the house exemplifies inside-outside living and speaks to the importance of complimenting the surrounding nature of an area.

Eternity beach house is a sanctuary located just steps from pristine Belongil Beach, Byron Bay, and Belongil River. Nestled behind the dunes, it was designed to let the outside in with wide sweeping decks and entertaining area.

Renovated with organic materials and fitted with the latest technology, the three double bedroom house is designed with the environment in mind and convenience at your fingertips.

Hempcrete was chosen for many of the internal walls, softening sounds and allowing the house to breath with the salty sea air. Sustainably sourced natural round timbers skirt the house and border the property, encouraging interaction between the built and natural environments. Simple copper plumbing compliments the variety of natural lime & clay renders used in place of traditional none-breathable wet area finishes.
