Modern Wooden Home Unfolds on Australia’s Beach

This modern Melbourne, Australia beach home is a twisted, wooden mass sprawling across the beach of its Mornington Peninsula property. The home’s entrance isn’t immediately apparent without a walk-about – a feature that the architects at McBride Charles Ryan purposely incorporated into the design for this vacation home, providing a quiet, peaceful retreat for residents and their guests. A glazed door peeks out from beneath the wooden folds which occupy the better part of the facade. Inside, a more-traditional design is surprising, given the home’s unique, modern exterior. Sunlight streams through the windows, casting illuminated shapes onto the wooden floor while illuminating every corner. A wooden deck encircles the home’s exterior, creating wonderful outdoor living spaces to take in the sunny surroundings.
