Contemporary Cantilever House Design by JCB Architects
In Cape Shank Victoria, this modern home by JCB Architects is characterized by dramatic cantilevered volumes projecting from the central core. Sitting atop a dune, a tall concrete base is combined with the cantilevers to take advantage of the views across the Mornington Peninsula. The architects cite a fallen log and branches as their inspiration for the design.
The west-facing volume contains two decks at its edge and is bordered by a thin pool whose water cascades over the sheer face of the concrete base. Inside, walls of windows and an open plan create the sensation of floating above the dune below.
A low key color scheme using high quality materials allows the view to remain the primary focus.
