Situated on the Mornington Peninsula located southeast of Melbourne, Australia, Rest Home is a modern day dream home created in a collaboration amongst Tim Spicer Architects and Col Bandy Architects.
The single-family members home is comprised of glass, galvanized steel, corten and concrete, resources selected not just for their contemporary aesthetic but also for weathering purposes due to the seaside location of the residence. The positioning of the dwelling functions meticulously-created angles to shield it from harsh winds off the nearby Bass Strait. It is also gently eased into the sloped land which creates an added layer of interest when approaching the structure. With views of the ocean and surrounding land, this house meshes effortlessly with its surroundings.
Glazed walls, sliding glass doors, huge terraces off living places allow residents and site visitors to engage with the outdoors. Windows deposit abundant light across the plan and are uniquely-shaped, inspired by nautical sails. Valley and water vistas come into play no matter whether in the residing room, kitchen or bedrooms.
The ground floor’s front and rear entrances are protected by cantilevered roofing, as nicely as tiers of landscaped gardens. The major living floor is reached by an inner wood and wired grid staircase which prospects to the dining area with 2-sided wood-burning fireplace which also faces the residing space. This elongated room accesses the kitchen with eat-in dining spot and big center island. A single separate terrace is enclosed by stainless-steel mesh screen walls, supplying a comfy and versatile dining and lounging area with stellar views of the sprawling canopy of trees.
Interiors remain restrained in a palette of white and timber, the 2 echoing the nature outside while allowing it to hold center stage from each and every perspective inside of the house.
The master suite sits down a hallway at one particular end of this primary living area, also bathed in a soothing palette of white and brown. The ensuite bathroom is just as serene and sits behind a partition wall which the bed rests towards making it possible for for an even far more spacious truly feel to the space. 2 guest bedrooms reside on the ground floor.
Rest Residence is a contemporary dream home portrayal which genuinely harmonizes with its environment with clever positioning, layout and supplies.
