A Coastal Family Home Embodying Open Plan Living By Three C Architects and Nexus Designs
Australian firms Three C Architects and Nexus Designs collaborated to create ‘Point Lonsdale Home’—a minimalist family retreat situated on the coast of Point Lonsdale, in Australia’s state of Victoria.
Located on a rocky outcrop a few hours south of Melbourne, the town of Point Lonsdale is a popular tourist destination, known for its expansive coastal views and historic landmarks. For the architects, this unique location provided the ideal backdrop for a family home designed to provide a restful retreat. The home provides a versatility of living spaces destined for use throughout the year. With ample outside space, the home embodies adaptable open-plan living, with retractable sliding doors providing an immediate connection to the surrounding foliage. Polished concrete floors throughout provide a sleek minimalist feel. Materials and furnishings are deliberately paired back yet retain an aura of luxury, with custom-made cabinetry and natural timber ceiling bringing warmth to the open-plan family living space. The property is a perfect example of a highly functional, yet one of a kind family home with exceptional architectural detailing, paired with bespoke interior furnishing.
