This modern wood and glass home, designed by InForm, is located on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne, Australia. Dubbed Blairgowrie 2, the house has four bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen, a lounge, dining space and a two-car garage.The design of the project follows the lines of “coastal modernity”; according to the architects, the intention was to build a large pavilion-like retreat that blends with the surroundings.”The characteristic long lineal roof plane caps the entire building, protecting the loggia and deck that extend the length of the northern exterior,” the architects said. “A full-height vertical timber screen protects the loggia from the west and creates a dynamic front façade.”

The interiors merge contemporary and rustic vibes, thanks to an array of carefully chosen textures: brick walls, oiled oak floors, stainless steel and marble countertops, and white mosaic tile for the kitchen backsplash.”Full-height black aluminum doors connect the living areas and master bedroom to the deck and sweeping lawn beyond,” the architects said. “The black aluminum provides a striking contrast with the smoky gray oiled timber cladding and crisp white fascias.”
