Sorrento House 1

Winner Residential Design: New Houses Over $1M

Designer: Vibe Design Group Pty Ltd
Builder: Icon Synergy Pty Ltd
Photographer: Vibe Design Group
Location: Sorrento, VIC

The asymmetric angular lines of this modern beach house is a spacious synthesis of timber, concrete and steel used sensitively and is assertively defined by the black window detailing. A fabulous juxtaposition of cast concrete walls that looks strong yet feel soft when combined with timber panelling and floors that feel bold yet look comfortable. This is a well-resolved design that permeates right through to the interior design and decoration. A stunning three-bedroom home with a thoughtful kitchen design, a spacious gym, supportive storage, inviting living rooms and expansive decking that invites entertaining by the fire-place and pool respectively. The house demonstrates that modesty and luxury can be reconciled through good design. Luxurious practicality and a clean aesthetic make this project deserving of this Award.
