Habitat Studio Architects has shared photos of a modern home they completed in Queensland, Australia, that’s located right on Currumbin Beach.
Inspired by coastal living, the home features an exterior of stone, white weatherboards that reflect the sun, and white battens that serve a dual purpose: to grace the exterior with a touch of contemporary allure while providing refuge from the blazing western sun.
Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the designers curated a materials palette that pays homage to the coastal charm. The living room and kitchen are open to the outdoor space, allowing unobstructed views of the ever-changing sea and sky.
Outside, there’s a designated area for sitting, dining, and a swimming pool.
Back inside, we see the dining area includes a double-height ceiling and abundant natural light.
Designed to be a private sanctuary, a small courtyard and garden offer respite from the predominant southerly sea breezes, providing a calm enclave where one can unwind and recharge.
The home’s upper level includes a bedroom with windows that perfectly frame the water views.
In the various bathrooms, natural elements, like wood and stone, have been paired with metallic accents for a contemporary look.
The home also includes a second outdoor space in the form of a covered balcony accessed via a sliding glass door.
