Intermode, an Australian modular housing company, creates dream homes. And these four homes would without a doubt be a DREAM to inhabit.
The coastal Mornington Peninsula hamlet of Blairgowrie has always inspired exciting contemporary architecture. With its rugged terrain, sloping hills, wind-swept tea-trees and sand dunes, the typography provides a rich backdrop for robust architectural expressions. Situated on a sloping site that opens up to a large tract of nature reserve, this Intermode beach house is subtlety tied to its tree line. The shell, painted in darker colours, disappears into the land, ensuring seclusion. In a conscious gesture, the low-slung building has been purposefully tucked into the site to enhance privacy but also to create a process of discovery.
Nestled in a canopy of trees in the Dandenong Ranges, the Emerald House is the soul of discretion. Surrounded by thick foliage and tall maple and oak trees, the house dissolves into its landscape, creating an almost tree house-like atmosphere.
