The Ark is the latest evolution of a beachside dwelling
that has been enjoyed by the same family for 60 years.
A sensitive new rear addition celebrates existing elements and is separated from the original house by a long skylight which slices between original and new. Timber is used extensively and in varied methods throughout from warm internal protected ceilings to rougher, board and batten systems externally which will gracefully wear over time.
Necessitated by a growing extended family and constant wear of the tough coastal environment this is the third interpretation of a holiday home in Point Lonsdale that was previously renovated by architect John Castles.
