Challenging Eco-friendly House in Australia – Point Lonsdale Beach House

Melbourne-based studio Baenziger Coles have created another stunning house in Point Lonsdale, a coastal township on the Bellarine Peninsula, in Victoria, Australia. This unique house is a sanctuary to retreat to and has an inspiring design that will leave you speechless.

The architects took on a daring project that had a few challenges. One of them was the site which was flat and uninteresting and this made it hard to obtain an original shape. Another challenge was to create a two storey home in a single level houses neighborhood.

This modern house is warm and welcoming, it is functional, eco-friendly and it responds to the environment. In order to create a bug, airy space the architect used an open floor plan and bright colors for the walls. The main attraction and focal point in the living and dining areas is a double-sided fireplace. The kitchen benefits from a lot of storage space, as well as upscale stainless steel appliances. Finally the bathroom feels like a spa due to the wooden panels on the walls, big mirrors and great bathroom furniture.

Point Lonsdale Beach House is an interesting and beautiful home. It is open, it is comfortable, it has a gorgeous garden/outdoor space, mainly everything you could possibly need.
