Beach House Architecture Celebrates the Australian Beach Shacks

Simplicity is the name of the game when it comes to this modern beach house architecture. The clients’ request for “much more room” has lead to the redesign of this aging in Anglesea, VIC, Australia. The architecture firm responded with a collection of timber boxes surrounding the existing main beach house. “The great Australian tradition of the ‘shack’ is in danger of being superseded by bloated mansions with four bathrooms and all the trappings of modern life,” according to the architects behind this design idea, Andrew Maynard Architects. “With this project we wanted to celebrate the shack and have kept close to the original building’s footprint to avoid taking over the rugged coastal block.” Although it’s not exactly “bare bones,” this beach house architecture really focuses on the key necessities – comfortable spaces with easy outdoor access and of course, outdoor decks, balconies and living spaces from which to enjoy the tree-top views.
