A multi-generational beach house

Posted on Fri, 9 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Somers Beach House occupies a prominent beach fronted property overlooking Westernport Bay with expansive views to Phillip Island and beyond to Bass Strait. The house sits on the steepest section of the site, with two generous levels acting independently of one another. It is designed as an inter-generational holiday house, with a focus on the upper level of the home being comfortable when occupied only by a retired couple.”

Now that’s the way to do a beach house. I’m packing my bags. I guess I can just turn up uninvited. A sensitive and considered approach to people and site. Somers Beach House by Melbourne-based Wellard Architects.
