The unusual shaped site in Beaumaris, triggered an innovative design response by Vibe Design; unique in both shape and form. Inspired by the client’s involvement with motorsport, Vibe created a modern facade, referencing the feel of the track. A sense of movement is created, as the zinc-clad box appears to have dropped in part to create a private entry with balcony over. A battened timber system was not only used to balance the façade, it also disguises the vehicle access, and partially screens the windows in the primary living area from passers by.
Imbued with the client’s personality and a lot of savvy design and technical know-how, the Tramway House is a wonderful representation of Vibe Design Group’s commitment to innovative and dynamic solutions.
