Mt Martha Design + Drafting Project 5
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 façade – 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.
