Loacted in the idyllic Mornington Peninsula, Eastwell House is a contemporary take on the traditional beach house. While accommodating a mix of lifestyles for the modern family, the design still preserves and celebrates the existing heritage dwelling.
The Traditional Custodians of this land
Gross Floor Area
Accommodating all modes of family life
A study and secondary living space have been integrated into the existing building to allow family members or children with friends a space to relax, work or play when a degree of privacy is preferred.
The extension features full-height glazing at ground level, with a dining room that opens directly to a deck to
optimise outdoor living in summer.
“We have minimal fingerprints in our work – we craft uniqueness in each project.”
– Claire McGuire, Senior Project Architect
The introduction of glazed links between Eastwell’s three main architectural forms provides a pause between spaces as well as a change in scale and material selection. The physical separation adds privacy and allows an abundance of natural light into the internal areas.
Materials that unify
A light timber floor board in the interiors picks up the neutral colour scheme of the exterior.
Concrete interspersed throughout robust joinery fulfils brief for light-filled spaces.
