Located on the Bellarine Peninsula, this residential development was designed to suit two “empty nesters” whose changing lifestyle required them to downsize their living arrangements.
One of the key aims of the project was to allow the client to maintain family connections through multi-generational living. Additionally, flexibility was required to allow for future sub-division.
We took a contemporary and refined interpretation to the concept of the beach shack, using an exposed timber structure and timber lining boards to provide for a relaxed lifestyle and greater sense of the natural environment. Consisting of two dwellings set on a single site, the property can be shared to allow for family gatherings. Individually, the planning arrangement provides for private living.
An abundance of natural light + warmth is filtered deep into the building through the use of north facing highlight windows, large volumes and voids from ground floor to first.
The result is two high performance dwellings that provide our clients with a home for the life of the family.
