Port Bouvard | Banham Architects ARCHITECTS
With its site positioned on the headland of the
southern point of Avalon Bay in Port Bouvard,
it is understandable that the design brief for this
home was dictated by the location.
The 180-degree view of the beach was to be
maximised through a floorplan that was as open as
possible, using very few internal walls so the ocean
outlook was visible from every room in the house.
The extensive use of glass and large sliding and
bifold doors distorts the line between inside and
out, further increasing the coastal connection.
Materials were carefully selected to keep
within the brief and ensure that the desired
outcome was achieved.
Mimicking the colour and the texture of the
beach, limestone was used extensively on the
flooring both inside and out, continuing to the
Bluestone cladding has been used for the
feature blade walls and provides a striking
contrast to the floating horizontal blades formed
by the roof and walls.
The horizontal and vertical planes found
throughout the home blend in a unique way to
create the effortless form of this property.
Every detail of this stunning residence has been
carefully considered and crafted to achieve the
client’s brief with a clean, minimal aesthetic.
