Created by Mt Martha Design + Drafting, this four-bedroom home on the mornington Peninsula is a stunning example of contemporary coastal architecture. the brief was for an airy, sustainable home that was designed to suit the gently sloping 600m2 block.

The home’s distinctive fac?ade – inspired by classic 1960s-style beachside architecture – is clad in commercially-grown and -milled, radial-sawn silvertop ash timber, which is renowned for its durability, sustainability and propensity to fade over time. the interior is tastefully decorated, with a stylish palette of colours, textures and materials. lustrous tallowwood polished floorboards and earthy accents of stone and concrete combine to create a warm and inviting environment.

The house is centred around a wide and airy passageway, which features high ceilings and double-glazed clerestory windows. sunlight filters through to various areas of the home, and brings with it a light, bright and warm atmosphere. the communal open-plan kitchen, dining and living area easily accommodates the homeowners’ family, and provides the perfect space in which to relax or entertain.

The home also includes a study, a spacious garage and a workshop, as well as an eastern-facing courtyard and northern-facing, covered outdoor area. the outdoor space features extensive spotted-gum decking, while the barbecue area also showcases beautiful australian timber.

A solar-power system and a solar hot-water system are installed on the roof, which ensures the home is simultaneously cost-effective and sustainable.

Individually-designed to suit the clients and the sloping site, the luxurious multi-level home creates a spacious, functional, comfortable and luxurious abode. A short flight of steps leads past the opulent main bedroom suite and study, and onto the expansive open-plan living area. Here, an angled rear wall consisting mostly of energy-efficient windows allows natural light to permeate the room, while full-height sliding doors lead onto the tiled, undercover balcony.

Moving back toward the entry, a flight of stairs leads down to the additional three bedrooms, which share a spacious bathroom and a separate toilet, as well as a large laundry with ample storage.
