Set among a copse of gnarled indigenous Moonah trees is this Point Lonsdale residence, the building’s simple form was planned around retention of the trees which are celebrated in the architectural response. Able to withstand the harsh coastal conditions, the use of timber is extensive throughout, with its rich hues bringing warmth to the interior. Windows and doors are designed as facade elements, seamlessly integrating into the external timber cladding which will naturally age and grey, receding into the coastal landscape. A gentle roof slope settles the house into its vegetated site
The timber windows were supplied by LBA Joinery and Austview retro fitted double glazed horizontal sliders to great effect.
