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.

Whimsy in Fort Lauderdale

“Peace, serenity, and escape—that’s the feeling this home evokes. Floridian Harbour is designed to be an architectural dreamscape filled with whimsical details, island motifs, and entertaining features for ultimate relaxation. The project was a ground-up home designed in collaboration with Smith and Moore Architects based out of Palm Beach, known for their classic yet innovative projects.”

It’s about ease, luxury, wellness, and comfort. Impactful but liveable. Floridian Harbour by Los Angeles-based Studio Jake Arnold.

Sea View

I love seeing into a designer’s own home. The spaces shine with creativity and love. Love of vintage and antique, light and views, pattern and colour. Beautiful yet liveable, profoundly personal and functional. Sea View Project, the San Francisco home of Caitlin Flemming.

Castello di Vicarello

I discovered Castello di Vicarello in a recent hunt for a castle to share today and realized Jo featured it back in 2012 but this restored relic is so dreamy I wanted to share it again. Carlo and Aurora Baccheschi Berti restored this 12th century castle in Maremma, a region of Tuscany, over many years (the castle’s main wings took 12 years alone to restore) and now their 3 sons run it as a guest house consisting of 9 suites. It is stunning inside and out and I love that the decor is casual and inviting. What an extraordinary vacation spot this would be.

“The client wanted to maintain the rich history and tradition forged by their parents and grandparents while creating a beautiful updated space in which they could forge new memories and traditions. The details and client’s history of the land, lake and home allowed us to be very creative, playful and add to the integrity of the home’s significance and lifetimes of memories to come. We challenged ourselves to hold the history of the home while enriching the space with the needs of our clients’ growing young family and future generations.”
