Shoreham, VIC, Australia
Project Shoreham by Modscape is orientated to enjoy the dramatic views across Western Port Bay in Shoreham Victoria.
This beautiful holiday home provides all the essentials for a beachside getaway.
The dwelling is arranged over two levels with a timber clad box atop a black metal base. The clients’ brief was to capitalise on the beautiful sea views.
In response Modcape placed the main living space and master bedroom on the first floor and constructed a secondary outdoor area to take full advantage of the northern sun.
The house is accessed via an external steel staircase leading from the carport whereby you arrive at a semi-enclosed courtyard. Vertical timber battened screens sheltering the courtyard provide privacy from the street while still allowing northern sunlight to penetrate deep into the house.
The battens are a continuation of the board + batten cladding which wraps around the upper level and helps to achieve an intimate quality through variation of natural light and shadow.
Occupants are then directed into the main living space and it is here where the full vista unfolds. An open plan kitchen, living and dining area extends onto the rear deck through a bank of floor-to-ceiling glass stretching across the width of the house.
The kitchen bench extends through to the deck providing the perfect area for outdoor cooking and entertaining.
The Cheminees Philippe double sided fireplace is a stunning feature of the home and is used to subtly define the dining and living room spaces. Modscape constructed generous accommodation and storage for guests and residents on the ground floor.
Modscape responded to the client’s’ preference for bright colours, painted doors and a bespoke kitchen. The modern interior colour scheme makes a bold statement against the more natural hues of the dwelling’s exterior.
