‘The Point’, Paynesville
(Also Winner – Best Interior Design, Residential)

“The middle-aged clients are very social people who enjoy wining and dining with friends,” said Joe Tantaro. “Their two grown-up sons no longer live at home, but visit regularly. The clients were moving from a rural setting (sheep farm and native nursery). They had concerns about privacy. They wanted to continue to run the native nursery for a few more years prior to full retirement, and then later develop the nursery site area into seaside cottages. Their new Paynesville home had to fully embrace the magnificent views of the Gippsland Lakes. We believe we have created a warm, friendly home with fantastic entertaining areas. We have used various materials that combine to create synergy; harmonising the mind to appreciate the natural. The home has a relaxed design, sympathetic to its site, which reflects the built environment. The clients continuously entertained over the summer period, and commented that the home is extremely functional, light, bright, well ventilated and delightful to live in. They wouldn’t change a single thing!”
