Queenscliff Material Home by John Wardle Architects

Designed by John Wardle Architects, this home in Queenscliff, Victoria, Australia acts as an optical illusion, with smart architectural designing facilitating the best views possible of both the southerly seashore and the north, to achieve a northern solar orientation. The materials used prolifically throughout the house are ones that resonate strongly with the immediate environment; fine timber, Calcatta marble, and the use of woven wicker along the staircase. The house is designed for a busy family, providing both privacy and communal areas, with a main living and dining area for family and friends to come together with a direct visual connection to the sea.
