Situated on a windswept hillside on Phillip Island, overlooking Bass Strait, sits the Ventnor Beach House by Modscape that allows the spectacular coastal location to be experienced in all its glory.

Organised around a central kitchen, living and dining space, the design of the four-bedroom house features an expansive use of glass to capture the incredible views of the wild beach environment and beyond.ย The kitchen, which is at the heart of the home becomes the intermediary space between both indoor and outdoor living.

Internal and external living spaces are configured in a way to ensure they provide shelter at different times of the day and year, while still allowing the amazing views to be experienced from within. Contrasting materials of pacific teak and zinc are used as cladding on the two simple volumes that make up the modular home, which will weather over time for a dramatic effect. Acting as a barrier from the wind, the building envelope protects the external courtyard tucked in behind it. A natural material palette further enhances the understated elegance of this haven, offering a quiet retreat for the clients from the hustle and bustle of their Melbourne lives.

Tongue n Groove solid engineered European oak floorboards in the Graupa colour, Eterno classic wire-brushed finish and Piccolo format feature throughout this incredible holiday retreat. The light honey hues and soft cream undertones of Graupa will set the ambiance in any home.
