Point Lonsdale Beach House Point Lonsdale, VIC

A beach-side residence in a town on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula echoes the spirit of its vegetated coastal setting.

Set among a copse of gnarled indigenous Moonah trees, the building’s simple form was planned around retention of the trees which are celebrated in the architectural response. Able to withstand the harsh coastal conditions, the use of timber is extensive throughout, with its rich hues bringing warmth to the interior. Windows and doors are designed as facade elements, seamlessly integrating into the external timber cladding which will naturally age and grey, receding into the coastal landscape. A gentle roof slope settles the house into its vegetated site.
