Situated on the Mornington Peninsula located southeast of Melbourne, Australia, Rest Property is a modern dream home developed in a collaboration among Tim Spicer Architects and Col Bandy Architects.
The single-family members house is comprised of glass, galvanized steel, corten and concrete, materials selected not just for their modern aesthetic but also for weathering purposes due to the seaside location of the residence. The positioning of the dwelling features meticulously-made angles to protect it from harsh winds off the nearby Bass Strait. It is also gently eased into the sloped land which creates an extra layer of interest when approaching the structure. With views of the ocean and surrounding land, this house meshes effortlessly with its atmosphere.
Glazed walls, sliding glass doors, huge terraces off living places allow residents and guests to engage with the outdoors. Windows deposit abundant light across the program and are uniquely-shaped, inspired by nautical sails. Valley and water vistas come into play no matter whether in the living room, kitchen or bedrooms.
The ground floor’s front and rear entrances are protected by cantilevered roofing, as well as tiers of landscaped gardens. The main living floor is reached by an internal wood and wired grid staircase which leads to the dining room with two-sided wood-burning fireplace which also faces the living area. This elongated space accesses the kitchen with consume-in dining region and big center island. A single separate terrace is enclosed by stainless-steel mesh screen walls, delivering a comfy and flexible dining and lounging space with stellar views of the sprawling canopy of trees.
Interiors stay restrained in a palette of white and timber, each echoing the nature outside even though allowing it to hold center stage from every viewpoint within the house.
The master suite sits down a hallway at 1 end of this primary living space, also bathed in a soothing palette of white and brown. The ensuite bathroom is just as serene and sits behind a partition wall which the bed rests against enabling for an even much more spacious feel to the space. Two guest bedrooms reside on the ground floor.
Rest Residence is a modern dream residence portrayal which genuinely harmonizes with its environment with clever positioning, layout and components.
