Clean geometric architecture and a restrained materials palette are the signatures of this waterfront residence in Mt Martha. The dual fronted property with a private and concealed entry, opens generously behind a veil of interlocking and cantilevering elements. A monochromatic palette both inside and out, enables temporary fixtures to bring life to the spaces, encouraging change or alteration as styles and tastes change, while the shell remains constant. Situated at the the heart of this home is a luxurious, entertainers kitchen for this food-loving family, elegantly finished in cool grey limestone which contrasts with the warm textured timber joinery and softens the heavy, masculine forms. The focus on a clean, linear formality was not only an appropriate response, but it ensures a continued relevance.
