Some say great design is when an entire home flows from start to finish, with no definitive stand out. A design that belongs with it’s surroundings. Incorporates modern comfort with nature in one space of harmony. Like a catchy song that you think you could have made yourself. But you couldn’t. Not like this. This is Mays Beach House by Preston Lane Architects.
“Set on a windswept hillside overlooking Frederick Henry Bay the project evolved from a pragmatic response to the challenges of occupying an exposed often extreme coastal site” – say Preston Lane Architects. “Born from these conditions, the design robustly responds establishing the house as a ‘windbreak’ to the bay this gesture in turn creating a haven from the elements tucked in behind.Stretched across the site the house follows the lay of the land, the simple form higher at the front addressing the scale of its context, lower to the rear allowing a more human scale to prevail.”
Mays Beach House uses Tasmanian Oak hardwood for windows and doors as well as flooring. To get the look, visit the GoodWood product page.
