Crafting an ultra-modern coastal retreat brimming with character and charm.

Coastal Getaway

The Task:

  • Design a family home on a small, narrow front court block.
  • Include access for a shed to house a boat or caravan.
  • Plan for a future man-cave.
  • Maximize the use of natural light.
  • Embrace an ultra-modern style.
  • Create a large outdoor area with a fireplace, offering protection from coastal winds.
  • Infuse the home with loads of character.

The clients, well-versed in their preferences, provided a detailed vision through a compiled scrapbook, aiding in a clear understanding of their needs.

The Result:

Overcoming challenges presented by a small, narrow front block, meticulous consideration was given to every inch to breathe life into this coastal haven. Nestled in a serene southern Victorian town, the home boasts a functional, low-maintenance exterior with locally sourced natural stone and materials. Bathed in natural warmth and light, celestial windows seamlessly connect the main living areas to the alfresco space.

A distinctive blade wall extends into the raked ceiling entry, adding architectural interest. An outdoor shower and WC are carefully designed, providing a perfect post-beach retreat.

Thoughtful design extends to the alfresco area, where flexibility shines. It can be fully opened up, creating a unified, expansive space. The kitchen contributes to the seamless indoor-outdoor experience, connecting effortlessly with a gas strut servery window. This innovative addition, with a bench overhang, becomes an ideal spot for relaxation. The design choice enhances overall flow, ensuring a harmonious blend between interior and exterior living spaces, fostering a genuine indoor-outdoor ambiance.
