A mid-century beach shack in Sorrento metamorphosises into a sumptuous yet relaxed luxury home for this elegant couple.




Sorrento, Victoria





Project year










Referencing modernist classics, unfilled travertine harmonises with the traditional limestone and sand dunes of the local Sorrento area.

A 1960’s beach shack has been transformed into a simple but elegant holiday house. Contrasting materials and techniques have been employed to create a work that is luxurious and contemporary whilst retaining the relaxed modernist feel of the original.

The open and adjustable floor plan interlinks the social and private spaces. Light and privacy is regulated by utilising Japanese style sliding screens and natural linen sheer curtains. Custom architectural joinery enables flexibility of function and form. Modest and sophisticated, the classic references and timeless materials of interior design and architecture give this beachy residence longevity.

On the interior we used our clean architectural shadow lines, timber paneling and painted brickwork. Inspired by the mid-century style, the taste of the client was aligned with a Scandinavian aesthetic. This results in a light, fresh and airy house that we think is fitting in the semi-urban setting.
