The quintessential beach house in Western Australia sits comfortably in a cloud of salt-impored air. Sun-baked beach towels hang steeply on the balustrades of the balcony. An aluminum canoe hugs safely under the protected canopy of a roof that dives into a Burley marinade and dives twice. When we designed the Sorrento, we tried to integrate these elements.
Inspired by the homes in Broome, Moore River, Lancelin, Seabird and Falcon, the Sorrento offers a space for parking cars or jolls underneath, a large veranda for sunny nights, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a free-spirited kitchen and salon that Inserve a feeling of life on a permanent holiday.
Sorrento is simply the ultimate beachfront home in Western Australia. This perfectly connected family home, with its U-shaped configuration, is discreetly located in the native coastal environment of the Mornington Peninsula. Seven modules, consisting of three bedrooms, a games room and an open-plan living space with a centerpiece of a two-sided fireplace, surround a central courtyard.
The full-height windows overlooking the courtyard create a pleasant perspective that offers views between the kitchen, dining and living spaces and the games room. This transparency makes it possible to create a relaxed holiday environment in this modular home design.
The house is suitable in its coastal bush environment, with an outdoor palette of dark, tinted wood with contrasted natural wood and galvanized steel.
