Peninsula House

A proposed new residence located on an impressive beachside site - one and a half hours south of Melbourne. Adjacent to St Andrews Beach and the Mornington Peninsula national park, the location features ocean views and preserved coastal vegetation.
The peninsula house is a response to very particular site conditions and client requirements. Environmental, planning, topographical, visual, and climatic site conditions were mapped, analysed and integrated into a set of design constraints that responded to these dynamic conditions.
The house is organised as a 3-d spiral, forshortening a conventional linear arrangement and creating both internalised as well expansive views, allowing privacy, visual adjacency and a protected outdoor space typical of courtyard house typologies.
Views to the site delineate a set of controlled perspective lines that define the orientation and form ramping volumes.
