Mornington Peninsula is a stunning area that provides a leisurely beach and rural lifestyle just an hour from Melbourne. It has several settlements that follow the coastline including, Mornington, Sorrento, Redhill and Portsea. These locations are an architect’s dream, with so many natural features that can be used to enhance the design of a house. The peninsula is a mix of standard cement shacks, grand family homes and modern sleek builds.
Despite its slower pace of life there is a bounty of things to do. It is not only a popular holiday destination but also a sought-after location to settle down in. Whether you want to wander around the galleries, relax in a spa retreat, indulge at a cafe or boutique winery, explore the national parks or just bask in the sun, there is something to appeal to every taste.
At Casper Architecture and Design, we love to create unique homes that are functional and enrich your lifestyle. We designed a house in Mornington that was modern and minimalistic while still exuding warmth. With polished lines and a natural palette, it melds contemporary design with the ease and flow of the outdoors. The modern beach home was designed to be not only visually spectacular but also functional in all seasons to provide an escape all year round.
We harnessed the breathtaking sea views on offer. The front facing wall of the ground floor featured full length windows to bring natural light into the home and provide a clear view across the beautiful beach landscape. The view can also be enjoyed outside while floating in the stunning infinity pool.
