This holiday home is designed to accommodate multiple families and guests simultaneously, creating the need for both insulated, private spheres as well as functional and welcoming communal areas. With apartment-like spaces, private entry points and a kitchenette independent of the main living/kitchen area, Parkside fits this brief perfectly.

WIth the dramatic juxtaposition of the timber batten cladding and block work of the carport area, the exterior of the property is a playful take on the classic Mornington bathing box form. The open nature of the structure is enhanced by the expansive windows framing the main living space. Parkside is a contemporary take on the classic beach house, offering the luxuries of crisp detailing and curated interiors, as well as meeting the practical needs of functional and versatile spaces.
