Beached House by BKK Architects
BKK Architects, an Australian firm, have designed the Beached House which is located on the coast of Victoria, Australia. It is a modern home that is best described as a home to leave the city behind and arrive in a nature-surrounded vacation home that appears to have evolved over time. Inside of it, the spaces unfold as you move through while new views are released with each step. It looks as if the home was washed ashore, but that is exactly what the architects wanted it to look like.
From the architects: “Beached House continues BKK‘s interest in the curation of the domestic as a sequence of unfolding spaces. The journey throughout the house is via a series of subtly shifting spaces that alter one’s orientation to climate and terrain. Carefully sited in response to prevailing conditions, there is an interest in how the building occupies the site. There is a sense that the home has been washed ashore; embedded into the terrain, anchored against the elements.”
