Fairhaven Seashore House – Victoria, Australia By John Wardle Architects



Shapes, dimension and movement define the Fairhaven Seaside House in Victoria, Australia. Perched high over the coastline, this modern dream home’s dramatic U-shaped program was invented by John Wardle Architects. 

A skin of grey zinc meshes with the seascape, while cantilevering and plentiful convex volumes offer distinction. A large angular front door greets, leading residents and visitors into a prolonged, timber-clad entrance corridor. In fact, the home’s interiors are completely sheathed in this smooth warm wood, portraying a sleek minimalistic vitality within an earthy coastal atmosphere.

With 3 separate stories–basement, ground floor and initial floor–rooms are big and spread out. A long, narrow wine cellar is nestled next to a casual living area and is on the identical level as the 2-automobile garage. The up coming story unfolds to reveal the primary residing location, dining space, research and 2 bedrooms (the third one is on the top floor.) The panoramic ocean views are magnetic, whilst the sound of the surf rises up towards the property generating a hypnotic lullaby.

The kitchen attributes a massive sliding window over the sink and an extensive flat-panel storage system which remains flush with walls generating a streamlined aesthetic. An asymmetrical wooden island assists transition the room to the dining area. The wooden table and chairs appear camouflaged inside the timber-clad area and, with the plate glass windows, appear to have the capability to slide out in direction of the ocean at any offered moment–love this visual suspense!

However sparsely furnished–a yellow leather sofa here, a grey-cushioned chair there–the property retains warmth, while a massive glass-and-steel wood-burning stove deposits a certain coziness. Modest perks of color like red and aqua seem, fairly fresh towards the abundant wood grain featured across the interiors. A central courtyard positioned to be protected from harsh winds gathers the residing spaces together and attributes a wood deck replete with created-in outside grilling station.

Fairhaven Beach House may possibly be one of the most special present day dream residences with unexpected angular folds and captivating visual connections to its rugged coastline.
