Anglesea Residence

Coming from a traditional style home in suburban Melbourne, the clients wanted a ‘beach house’ feel, in a totally different environment. Spending time with family and friends was the inspiration for building at Anglesea, as well as being in an environment that gives inspiration to the consultancy work carried out by one of the owners. Requirements included open living spaces with connection to the kitchen, outdoor living areas to both levels, with the children/guest bedrooms separated from the master bedroom. Most important was a stone bath shown to the designer in a photograph at the very first meeting….this was a ‘must have’, even if the house had to be designed around it. The result is an extremely liveable design. The house suggests activity with the flow of the internal spaces and connectivity with outdoor areas. The plan is to be commended for its orientation and consideration of ocean views. The forms are lively and expressive and the interiors are carefully considered, with spare, judicious use of colour within a neutral palette.
