13th BEACH BRICK HOUSE
13th BEACH, VICTORIA
New Residence - completed 2013
A new house on the 13th Beach golf course. This is a house of brick, a fortification, bunkering into the dunes and protecting against the strong coastal winds. The house is solid and sheltered; the masonry walls encircle and enclose, providing privacy, curated views to the golf course and a protected northern courtyard. The entry slips between two soaring blade walls into a double height space, the void carrying through the living zone and giving the house a heightened sense of light and space within its contained footprint. A cantilevered study perches over the entry, connecting the two living levels.
