A family residence is situated on a piece of land overlooking the ocean, it is a beach house set in the built up environment of the suburb of Portsea. The building is to be made out of solid rough sawn travertine blocks sitting on a masonry structure of weathered timber. The house is approached through a large landscaped garden. The building is orientated to the rear of the block, designed so the main living and main bedroom on the first level capture views to the Portsea Pier. The plan is designed for an extensive family creating different zones for different generations.
