Portsea Beach House
The Portsea beach house is our response to a wonderfully simple brief to create an elegant and practical family beach house. This beach house is located on a compact site in Portsea on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. Our design celebrates the simplicity, clarity and the natural beauty that emerges when form and function come together. It is a spatially and structurally efficient home that makes the most of a small footprint. Spaces are configured to create a range of separable private zones and free flowing communal areas. Large areas of full height glazing are utilised to bring natural light into the interior and extend views out to a landscaped garden. The building is clad almost entirely in a single material to emphasise its form and remind us that simplicity can be dramatic and beautiful at the same time.
