A collaboration between the clients, Zorzi Builders,
and architects Design Management Group, this
spectacular home was created with a clear vision
from the outset.
The brief required a property that maximised
coastal views, adopting a minimalist design and
using natural and coastal materials that could
withstand the environment.
Constructed on a slightly undulating site
200m from the beach, this family home
boasts extensive use of stone throughout. Most
striking are the zinc cladding in a flat-lock
panel system on the upper alfresco area, and
the geometric ‘framed box’ that sits to right,
overlooking the pool.
Geothermal heating has been used for the pool
and internal floors, created by drilling into the earth
and circulating water down and back up again,
warmed, to keep the pool at 26°C all year round.
Inside, the upper level features the master
bedroom suite with expansive ensuite and dressing
room, and the open-plan living, kitchen and
dining areas which open to the impressive alfresco.
Minor bedrooms are located on the ground
floor – giving parents and children their own zones
– while the basement (serviced by an elevator)
includes a wine cellar, workshop and garage.
The use of natural materials is evident
throughout the interior, from the Saltino Paladio
stone floors, to Quantum Quartz vanity- and
benchtops through the kitchen, laundry and
bathrooms. The oversized pivoted front door is
rich ironbark timber, as are the door frames,
complemented by the cool tones of the neutral
At the front of the home, an external spiral
staircase connects the alfresco with the pool area.
This luxurious home combines minimalism
with materials and finishes that sit comfortably
with the surrounding environment, while being
able to withstand the coastal conditions.
This phenomenal coastal abode proves simplicity and careful
selection of materials can create a masterpiece.
