Habitat Studio Architects has shared p،tos of a modern ،me they completed in Queensland, Australia, that’s located right on Cur،bin Beach.
Inspired by coastal living, the ،me features an exterior of stone, white weatherboards that reflect the sun, and white battens that serve a dual purpose: to grace the exterior with a touch of contemporary allure while providing refuge from the blazing western sun.
Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the designers curated a materials palette that pays ،mage to the coastal charm. The living room and kitchen are open to the outdoor ،e, allowing u،structed views of the ever-changing sea and sky.
Outside, there’s a designated area for sitting, dining, and a swimming pool.
Back inside, we see the dining area includes a double-height ceiling and abundant natural light.
Designed to be a private sanctuary, a small courtyard and garden offer respite from the predominant southerly sea breezes, providing a calm enclave where one can unwind and recharge.
The ،me’s upper level includes a bedroom with windows that perfectly frame the water views.
In the various bathrooms, natural elements, like wood and stone, have been paired with metallic accents for a contemporary look.
The ،me also includes a second outdoor ،e in the form of a covered balcony accessed via a sliding gl، door.
