A beach shack renovation by architectural studio Auhaus. The original humble cottage was remodelled adding texture and warmth to the casual living within and out. Cathedral ceilings increase the sense of space. A second sister cottage or guest pavilion is connected not only by a deck but by repeating the cladding and the childlike house shape. Native tea trees incorporated into the space provide a dramatic connection to the site. A wonderful compound for the family and friends that are a given with a beach home. Why live in a wonderful part of the world (Barwon Heads, Victoria) if you can’t share the seachange?

Beautiful house – inside and out.

So inspiring. Love the tin pressed looking tile up the wall. I'm always interested in alternatives to drywall!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the curvy trees and all of the natural wood. What a unique little slice of heaven. Thanks for sharing!
