Its perched atop of Blairgowrie’s back beach sand dunes and will showcase commanding views across Bass Straight and Port Phillip Bay. Using a raw material such as cast – insitu concrete formed walls and Australian hardwoods, the home will be sophisticated in design while staying true to the rugged back beach coastline. The home will feature a pristine negative-edge lap pool and will be the second winning collaboration between Planned Living Architects, Studio Tom Interior Design, Acre Studio and Made Build.
