Stone House

Stone House is a grand six-bedroom pavilion house split over two levels. Designed as a holiday house for a large family with the potential to become a full-time residence over time, monolithic stone walls connect the house to landscape, intersecting the floating horizontal roof plane. Below the roof, a glass envelope is open on all sides with ocean and country views; from Point Leo to Shoreham’s olive groves.

To allow both family and guests to enjoy privacy during extended stays, the sleeping areas are split by the insertion of small gardens which frame distant views as you navigate the building. The layout bends around the main pool courtyard, capturing northern sun and providing shelter from prevailing winds. Natural and robust materials such as zinc, concrete and locally sourced grey granite suit the coastal environment and define the architectural form, while offsetting the luxurious finishes of marble, brass and dark timbers inside.
