This design shows how far Arkular has taken modular homes. Drawing inspiration from the Banksia Integrifolia native to the site in its form. Architecturally cleaver in its response to cultivating this Mornington Peninsula coastal site. The design is robust yet sustainable, achieved through integrating a segmented facade with east-facing rooms that capture the sun passively heating the home. This repetition of the line also blends the house into the environment. A home that maximises the landscape from the inside and is settled from the out.
The open-plan living-dining room is the central point of the home, Bathed in northern light, with windows that capture the coastal bush to the south. Branching off this space is the bedroom wing, a master with all the amenities and views that will be accessible for years. Spare bedrooms are made up for friends and family to stay positioned for privacy and comfort. Sliding doors can break up the spaces, allowing sustainable living and opening to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
