Mornington Duplex

Mornington, Victoria


Extending on the coastal narrative of its Mornington Peninsula locale, Mornington House is a light-drenched family duplex informed by multi-generational living within a contemporary beachside context.

With light and spatial optimisation as its touchstones, the home mediates between nostalgic domesticity and innovation. A timber clad facade gestures the weatherboards in the surrounding streetscape while inside soaring raked ceilings and a largely traditional layout reveals the familiarity of living areas downstairs and tertiary sleep spaces above.

Counterbalancing a clear nod to enduring Australian living patterns are a myriad of elements that propel the home into a future-focused relevance. A generosity of space allocated to areas that nurture rituals of self-care is evident. The primary bedroom is intentionally separated from others, located on the ground floor for convenience and privacy. Open-plan navigation and the considered placement of apertures promote light and air while seamless transitions are fostered through meticulously integrated joinery and operable glazing.
