Point Lonsdale Beach House


The residence, set amongst gnarled indigenous Moonah trees, a footprint was established to ensure their retention thereby becoming the highlight and providing the architectural response. 

The use of timber is extensive throughout, exhibiting the timber’s rich hues to imbue a warm and evocative interior, and allowing the exterior timber to grey and recede into the coastal landscape.

Fabricated by a bespoke joiner, windows and doors are designed as facade elements, seamlessly integrating into the house’s cladding. A consistent gentle roof slope settles the house into its vegetated site.
