Torquay House by Wolveridge Architects is a robust solid house in Torquay, Victoria, Australia. Due to its coastal location, the architects tried to adapt the property to the coastal landscape and climatic conditions. This project tries to give the building a shape and character that corresponds to the context and the surroundings.
Robust solid house with wooden facade
In coastal areas, buildings have to be robust and withstand climatic conditions, so the architects have created protected spaces, both internal and external, where occupants can feel safe and comfortable. This beach house is the perfect place despite the heat of summer or the cold of winter.
Robust solid house offers protection and comfort
With a beautiful view to the north and south and a conscious intention to avoid facing east and west, a number of interconnected constructions have been developed. The robust solid house should be balanced by the expression of fine details.
Driveway and night lighting
The private spaces allow natural ventilation and light, intimate views and privacy for the residents. One of the courtyards contains the entrance to the house, while another is dedicated to barbecues.
A combined living and dining room is on the ground floor and opens to a pool at the rear. Three bedrooms are on the upper floor and each has its own bathroom.
