"This highly inventive house is a "clever" piece of architectural assembly which sets an example to its lamentable neighbours whilst at the same time borrowing from their fibre cement, propped verandah and skillion form vocabulary. Rather than presenting a wall of glass to the sea, it presents a composition of windows in a solid form with views carefully selected and framed. Essentially, this house is a tightly planned box, just tall enough to be considered a tower, animated by exuberant timber appendages which, on closer inspection, are significantly more than mere decoration on a shed. There is a degree of spontaneity about the building which is appealing to the casual observer, giving it somewhat the impression of the improvised beachcomber’s shelter. The building presents a host of well-resolved details throughout"
