Beaconsfield Parade House

A vacant lot of approx. 230m2 overlooking Port Phillip Bay is the setting and inspiration for this contemporary residential infill in Middle Park. Designed for empty nesters it adopts a nautical visual aesthetic complimentary to it’s beachside location.

Transparent elliptical built form and curvilinear cantilevered balconies create a dramatic contrast to the rectilinear composition that makes up the heritage streetscape, providing striking visual interest while exploiting uninterrupted bay views.

The internal living amenity incorporates a restrained minimalist sensibility and materiality. A rooftop deck completes the functional amenity providing an abundance of outdoor open space not normally associated with small sites. A ‘floating’ zinc-clad roof canopy caps off the bespoke composition, like a soft felt trilby hat caps off a perfectly tailored suit!
