Merricks Beach House

Winner Residential Design: New House $300K-600K construction cost

Designer: Design Unity Pty Ltd
Builder: Owner/Builder
Photographer: Matthew Mallett Photography
Location: Merricks Beach, VIC

This project demonstrates an excellent use of composite materials, with a significant openness in the design utilising the outlook to the external rear zone of the property, positioning it well in its natural environment. The internal and external forms clearly demonstrate a connection by way of colour, with a seamless flow. The overall character reads basic, minimal, simple, however comfortable! The minimalist approach has also proven to be timeless, with the opportunity to change internal soft furnishings without the need to change the form.
