Mt Martha Design + Drafting Project 8
Created by Mt Martha design + drafting, this four-bedroom home on the Mornington Peninsula is a stunning example of contemporary coastal architecture. Reflecting an emphasis on natural and sustainable Australian materials, commercially grown and milled, radial-sawn silvertop ash timber – renowned for its durability, sustainability and propensity to fade over time – is used throughout the property. 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 home is centred around a wide and airy passageway, which features high ceilings and double-glazed clerestory windows. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area easily accommodates for everyday family activities, and provides the perfect space in which to relax and entertain. A study, a spacious garage and workshop, as well as an eastern-facing courtyard and a northern-facing, covered outdoor area provide everyday functionality. The installation of a solar power system and solar hot-water system ensures the home is simultaneously cost-effective and sustainable.
The property received a Commendation Award for the 2018 Residential Design New House $600,000–$1 million category by the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV ) for its strategies to maximise natural light, as well as its connection to outdoor spaces, and passive solar performance.
