Set on the edge of the Anglesea coastline, the Dame Of Melba House uses carefully selected materials to overcome its salty seaside environment. The exterior is clad in locally sourced timber, meant to slowly weather over time and expose a gray hue. Its top-heavy design allows for a set of cantilevered overhangs, one acting as a carport and the others as decks. Unlike traditional floor plans, the interior is flipped to have the main living area on the second level, while the sleeping quarters reside on the ground floor. This elevated design allows for premium ocean views from the full-height glazing in the kitchen and living room.
