Wyndham Beach House by Sky Architect Studio Pty Ltd

Wyndham Beach House is a project designed by Sky Architect Studio Pty Ltd. “Our client engaged us to design a three-storey residence on a 545 square metre block at Wyndham Harbour, one of the largest marinas on Port Phillip Bay. The third storey was necessary to capture harbour views and the project was given an allowable budget of $750,000. Photography by David J Miller.


The elevated 545 square metre block is in close proximity to the Wyndham Harbour Marina, just two blocks away, and had the clear potential for a house to be built that would enjoy magnificent harbour views. The site is an irregular shape, however, which meant we needed to maximise site coverage in order to allow for a larger habitable floor area within the home.

Our client desired a contemporary design for the home with an open plan living, dining and kitchen area opening to a north-facing deck plus private space incorporating four bedrooms, three bathrooms (including an en suite to the main bedroom), a study area and laundry. A double garage was also required in the brief and the residence was to incorporate sustainable design, including energy-saving features.

Overall, the major challenge was to adhere to Wyndham Harbour’s two-storey limit on all new buildings while satisfying the client’s desire to take advantage of the potential for harbour views.”
