Take a trip to Mornington, Australia and cast your eyes on our latest beach house obsession.
In a statement about the property, architect Clare Cousins explains that the assignment called for an extension of an existing 1970’s Merchant Builder’s home. Since the original house was built on a slope, the firm designed the adjacent structure to stand a story taller on stilts to maximize views. Now, the property's residents come home to two houses -- both very different structures.
As fans of keeping things on the minimal side of the design spectrum, we think it's a remarkable beach house. With abundant exposure to natural light, a terrace that overlooks Port Philip Bay and newfound parking right below the new unit, it's a lifestyle we'd have a hard time saying no to. But that's just us. Scroll through the photos and decide for yourself.
A major hat tip to Dezeen.
