Ocean House

This practical, unpretentious beach house, overlooking Lorne Pier, Louttit Bay and Aireys Inlet Lighthouse, layers earthen materials to create a calm retreat for a family of five.


A tactile palette of oak, terrazzo, hand-glazed tiles and white marble lends spaciousness and grain to the modestly scaled home. The clients’ penchant for entertaining is met with an open kitchen, living and dining space, where views to the water are complemented by the interior’s soapy blue and green tones. The home’s brick fireplace, shiplap cladding and timber-framed bunkbeds celebrate the charm of the traditional coastal beach house, while spirited touches, such as the bathroom’s scallop-edged mirrors, offer a playful edge.
