Introducing Bluff House by @PrestonLaneArchitects, nestled amongst the eucalyptus in the beach-side community of Spring Beach, Tasmania. ‘We like to keep ideas as simple and elegant as possible to let the materials speak for themselves,’ says Daniel Lane of Preston Lane, who have designed a clean-cut beach house using Linea™ Weatherboard by James Hardie. ‘We seek solutions that will stand the test of time.’ Learn more about this unique modern home on the blog!
Drawing inspiration from the Banksia Integrifolia native to the site, the house responds to the challenges of living against the East coast of Australia. A robust, yet environmentally and economically focussed building, Banksia House emphasises the importance of custodianship through a heightened connection to ‘place’.
Sixteen years after establishing his practice, architect Matt Elkan is rebranding the studio alongside long-time colleague and friend Daina Cunningham, reaffirming their ethos that architecture is fundamentally about serving people.
