Architecture Wednesday: Wildcoast


Keep it simple.

A box with some windows perched high atop a hill that seems poised to take off.

This home, designed by FGR Architects, in Portsea, Australia, is not a huge home—about 3600 square feet—but was designed with the idea of creating a private home with glass walls and spectacular views. And so it was set upon the crest of a hill for the owners to enjoy the views of the beach of Portsea and yet offer a sense of seclusion.

It’s just a box, but a pretty fabulous one at that!

Very clean and chic. But what I fell in love with most were the front step in front all at different plank lengths, with scattered placement. When Im an old fart this will be the perfect home...no fuss.

Trust me 3,600 feet is yuge in UK where we mostly live in little boxes as we don't have much room. We have the same population as France with a lot less land to fit us all in. And I'm with Deedles

Little boxes on a hillside. This one isn't so little and it's definitely not made of ticky tacky. I love it.
