The prefabricated Inverloch House connects the indoors with the outdoors in a number of clever ways. This window sill becomes a trendy breakfast bar once the bi-fold windows are opened, while clerestory windows provide a glimpse of the sky from the kitchen.
Inverloch House was prefabricated to save money and construction time. it was designed as several connected pavilions so that it could be transported to site, but that has the added benefit of making it appear less bulky. More like a collection of smaller shacks rather than one big home.
Pendant lighting and clerestory windows ensures this beach house is well-lit day and night. The natural light during the day helps the home to feel bright and spacious, while at night, the pendant lighting creates intimate pools of light.
The all-timber Mornington Beach House will eventually fade to grey and recede into the surrounding tea-tree scrub. Timber is a traditional building material used for beach houses, but this home shows it's just as relevant as ever.
