Philip Island House


Location: Philip Island
Type: New Build
Stage: Complete

A modern interpretation of the fibro ‘Beach Shack’, the house is set amongst the tea tree and banksia of the Silverleaves foreshore. The house is arranged over two split levels, addressing the terraced contours of the site. Bedrooms and bathrooms sit to the south of the site, at the sites highest point. Moving through the house you step down into the kitchen and primary living areas which open out to the north and rear of the site. Responding to the clients’ modest budget, the house is clad in simple materials of cement sheet. Fixed glazing panels simplify the elevation, minimising the requirement for mullions while openable ventilation panels allow for the circulation of air throughout the house.
