The owners of a particularly pristine piece of land in Inverloch, Australia commissioned James Stockwell to design them a new home. Their brief emphasized two important design considerations: provide coastal vistas from every direction and ensure that the house is in sync with the incredible natural environment. Stockwell responded with a low-lying home that hovers like a spacecraft, and it boasts a host of innovations that minimize its overall footprint.
This gorgeous home was constructed amid a coastal landscape in southern Victoria, Australia
Materials with a low-embodied energy footprint were used to construct the home, along with locally-sourced timber
Double glazing permits natural light without excess solar gain
Every corner of the house has a coastal vista, per the owners' brief.
Natural light minimizes the need for mechanical cooling
Stockwell did a fabulous job of integrating the home within the natural landscape
