Displaying an unconventional shape inspired by the Australian coastline, the Rest House in Victoria, Australia was created by Tim Spicer Architects in collaboration with Col Bandy Architects. Each the architects and the owners-an active retiring couple-share a enjoy for sailing and this imposing residence displays their passion. You may have observed the undertaking’s butterfly roof, which resembles a boat’s hull. The uncommon inclined walls also come with a practical goal: that of safeguarding the garden from southerly winds.
All interiors exude a feeling of space and neatness and the layout was imagined as follows: “The 1st floor includes a big kitchen, dining and living area and, at its easterly finish, spills onto an entertaining terrace and backyard at the rear of the block. At the west end of the home, the residing space opens up onto a massive cantilevered deck, enclosed by stainless-steel mesh, which provides a protected vantage stage overlooking the valley below“. The bottom level contains 2 guest bedrooms, moist areas and a lock-up garage. Concrete, glass, corten and galvanized steel were the principal components employed, adapting the design and style to its harsh coastal spot.
