Seaview House is a project that mixes the rural scent with the tranquility of a place that brings the sea a little bit closer to the inhabitable place. The exquisite home, located in Barwon Heads, Australia, has been designed by Jackson Clements Burrows and envisioned as a particular seaside retreat, that surprises the elements of change in a neighbourhood that also develops and expands fast. Subsequently, it became a permanent home. Seaview House is unique in terms of architecture, showcasing a post-war beach structure with rural details. Divided in three pavilions, the spaces are smoothly connected by glazed links. “The design of the house was carefully conceived to embrace the essence of the clients existing rural and coastal lifestyle and to accommodate the later stages of their lives.”
At a closer look, the Seaview House reminds us of the authentic American barns, only with the extra element of sophistication, of course. The pavilions are oriented South, Northwest and Northeast. The South pavilion provides an open plan living space, with a long, corridor-like kitchen. The main material used in defining the Seaview House is wood. Everything keeps its simplicity, from the decoration to the structure. The space is breezy and comfortable, giving that particular feeling of relaxation, we are all looking to find in the intimacy of our homes.
