If you arrive in Point Lonsdale, the coastal town near Victoria,Australia, your attention will definitely be caught by a contemporary beach house. “Responsible” for this project is the Melbourne-based design studio, Baenziger Coles. The building in itself proves to be a reflection of the owner’s passion for outdoors, no matter it is surfing, fishing or surf life saving. What makes this beach house so special? First, it is the perfect place for a retreat; you can relax and entertain your friends and family in a comfortable place, which is obviously linked to the outdoors.
The connection with the ground is one of the best-emphasized aspects and beyond the contemporary design, the orientation and arrangement embracing the natural environment is more than impressing. Everything reflects the passion for quality, beauty and at the same time, functionality and a harmonious relationship with the environment. Nothing compares to the simple arrangement of three elements: the first floor or the so-called “container”, the ground floor area containing the internal arrangements and the lounge area.
The words characterizing this house, which can definitely be considered a dream place, are openness and clearly defined spaces, both outdoor and indoor, as the quality of the external architecture is obviously reflected inside the house. It is the kind the home everybody dreams about: a large open space, which provides everything you might think of: simplicity, modernity, high quality, good taste, pleasant colors and an inviting atmosphere in which it is impossible not to feel at ease.
