Set a block back from the shoreline of Lake Victoria, in Gippsland, on a simple level site this design takes advantage of all the site has to offer, and more.
Our brief was to design a flexible and robust home for a family of 5, whilst also having space to cater for additional family and friends over summer, and etch out a sea view if possible, all whilst on a firm budget.
With this in mind, thextonsmith responded by lifting the home on posts to the maximum height possible, whilst still allowing space for a roof top deck. This kept the floor plate minimal, essentially being a single level house on stilts, whilst providing shade, cover and shelter below for cars, camping and covered outdoor entertaining adjacent the lawn area.
The living level obtains Lakeviews, whilst and the rooftop deck has uninterrupted Lake views.
The raised home consists of 5 bedrooms, living, dining, kitchen and family rooms, master ensuite and bathroom with separate powder room. The lower level consists of an entry lobby and garage/workshop.
