The Birth of an Idea: Wonderful modern house is the result of the love of the Australian coast and sailing

10 August, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This holiday home is the result of long-standing friendship between client and architect. Their shared love of sailing and the Australian coast inspired the appearance of this house which is located near to the ocean. Large amounts of glass have been used in order for the views of the surrounding vegetation, the valley and the ocean to be seen from every window. On the ground floor there is a large kitchen, dining room and living room which have all been designed in a simple, yet practical way. In the western part of the living room, it opens out onto a large cantilevered deck, which is surrounded by a stainless steel mesh. In the east wing there is a terrace with a garden that has a lovely atmosphere and aura. This modern holiday home was designed by Tim Spicer Architects closely with Col Bandy Architects and is located in Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia.
