Bones House by Lachlan Shepherd Architects

Bones House is a project designed by Lachlan Shepherd Architects. Positioned on a hilltop overlooking the iconic Bells Beach Surfing Reserve, the Bones House involved alterations and additions to the existing dilapidated 3 bedroom residence on site. Photography by Nic Stephens Photography.


The existing footprint was largely re-used, with components of the original dwelling retained, whilst at the same time, completely re-imagining the building.

The brief called for a refined home with a highly detailed application of material, but with a comfortable, warm aesthetic.

The response was to utilise an earthy, textural palette to harmonise with the surrounding environs, essentially appearing as though the “re-imagined” building had always been there.
