One Shearwater Drive, a luxurious modern coastal home, sits comfortably into it’s lookout in Mt Martha on the Mornington Peninsula. Vibe considered all aspects of the site in designing the landscape and entry to the property, specifying a steel sculpture from artist Russell Petherbridge, and of course in the building itself. From the street, it is an exercise in modest, minimal chic. You enter into a series of light, spacious rooms connected to decking platforms over two levels, with views of Port Philip Bay, and collected around a central double height void.
The building deftly embodies decades of experience designing for the coastal environment. A palette of materials and finishes that will weather well, providing a stylish and hardy skin to the luxury within. This building is a machine for wringing every last drop of enjoyment from the ever changing view, and not shy in creating a few stunning aspects of its own.
