Rest House in Australia

architecture Rest House Reflecting the Owners Passion for Sailing: Rest House in Australia

Displaying an unconventional shape inspired by the Australian coastline, the Rest House in Victoria, Australia was developed by Tim Spicer Architects in collaboration with Col Bandy Architects. Both the architects and the owners-an active retiring couple-share a love for sailing and this imposing residence reflects their passion. You may have noticed the project’s butterfly roof, which resembles a boat’s hull. The unusual inclined walls also come with a functional purpose: that of protecting the garden from southerly winds.

At the west end of the house, the living room opens up onto a large cantilevered deck, enclosed by stainless-steel mesh, which provides a protected vantage point overlooking the valley below“.
