The brief

The clients requested an architecturally designed beach house that made the most of the grand ocean views in this Apollo Bay holiday home. Distinct requirements for multigenerational living with allowances for separate apartments for their adult children to use the ground floor to entertain when visiting.

Our approach

Our architects wanted to create a home where guests were wowed by the view at every turn and as such each room boasts feature glazing that captures that experience.

The ground floor has been conceived as a self-contained visitors’ apartment with its own modest services and kitchenette.

The local landscape and history of the area are evoked through the textured concrete cladding and modern expressions of aluminium siding that surround the home. Materials and palettes were carefully considered to withstand and harmonise with the coastal conditions.
