Three Angle House
A continuation in thought, form, detail, region and team of the Two Angle House. Sited on a ridge across from a reserve in Mount Martha, the Three Angle House is the formal extrusion of the intersection of a solar orientation and the three primary views found onsite. Designed for a couple who were looking for a seachange from city life, the main living spaces and master suite were lifted to the first floor to maximize views out to Mornington and the bay (north), Mount Martha Reserve and Point Nepean (west) and the distant Melbourne CBD (southwest).
The entry of the house was burrowed into the earth and designed to reveal the principal northern view across the bay. Two board formed concrete walls focus the eye through a large glazed blackbutt sliding door which perfectly picture frames a breathtaking view across Jullul Bay. A Blackbutt and steel stair cantilevers off one of the board formed walls and lands between the master suite and living areas on the first floor. The living, dining and kitchen areas are all aligned to the main view to the north. Blackbutt and concrete details are intentionally justaposed throughout the space. A blackbutt handrail was recessed into the boardformed concrete wall. Blackbutt timber soffits, flooring, decking and sliding doors add warmth to the key spaces. Concrete walls, cast in place concrete kitchen benchtops and hearths, raw fibre cement panels and polished plaster provide tactility and imperfection to the spaces. The master suite is designed as an elegant wing of the home featuring large expanses of porcelain, extensive custom joinery, polished plaster and wool carpet, all while remaining connected to the striking views and outdoors.
The ground floor features large outdoor living spaces, a beautiful infinity edge pool and additional bedrooms designed for extended stay visitors from overseas.
