Casuarina House is a new family home in a coastal subdivision. The building has been designed to promote access to the outdoors and to exploit the coastal lifestyle of northern NSW.

The architects and owners of the house set out to make a garden, not just a home. Unlike many of the neighbouring houses, the Casuarina house has been pushed to the southern edge of the block to free open space for a large garden that spans the full length of the site. New living spaces located on the ground floor have large door and window systems allowing the interior to open to the outside. Internal floors are raised on timber platforms, a step above the brick circulation zones to manage sandy feet.
