- Preston Beach, Western Australia
The $50m “Footprints at Preston Beach” resort was the first beach shack resort of its kind in WA. The architecture reflects the tradition of the many simple and unpretentious beach shacks that have and still do exist along the coast. A warm and inviting village atmosphere was designed for shade from the hot summer sun and protection from the sometimes severe winds. The single-level shacks and two-level apartments are characterised by corrugated iron roofs, weatherboard, and larger plank walls. Landscaping is simple - keeping with the natural environment of grass and peppermint trees.
Stages 1 and 2 sold out within weeks of release. The revival of the “beach shack” has seen “Footprints at Preston Beach” gain wide media attention. The highly successful project has become a new favourite holiday destination for families.
