Latitude 37’s multi-award-winning Beaumaris Display Home takes cues from its setting to showcase the custom design and build company’s hallmark expertise.
Each home is individually designed and tailored to each client’s site, lifestyle and budget.
Latitude 37, recently awarded 2021 HIA Australian Professional Medium Builder of the Year and 2020 HIA Victorian Professional Medium Builder of the Year, works synergistically with the site’s natural constraints and opportunities while drawing on innovative use of materials to set the design apart.
The Beaumaris Display Home, which makes full use of its Bayside location, expertly positioned to the block’s best advantage.
Keeping with the characteristic flat-roof profile of the sunny Bayside suburb, Latitude 37’s display is an idyllic example of Beaumaris living. The façade’s sturdy massed substance is resolute in its standing, providing a taste of the quality within.
Thoughtfully placed, the floorplan is a demonstration of clever reverence to its surroundings. Beaumaris Display stretches linearly across the site. Solar aspect and privacy are the top priorities for choice of orientation, with windows positioned to minimise outlook to surrounding dwellings while maximising light penetration and indoor-outdoor connection.
Opportune planning allows the northern sun in, with living areas overlooking an impressive pool courtyard. A buffer is achieved along the south elevation where the pantry, laundry and bathrooms are situated.
Inclusion of floor-level windows creates feelings of seclusion from the street yet allows sunlight to pour in and afford peeks of lush shrubbery to remind of the garden awaiting beyond. A sense of spatial grandeur is felt upon entry, as bespoke joinery is continued throughout, framing and dividing the interior.
An uninterrupted vantage across the linear form, from doorway through the living area and into the backyard, instils an open airiness that is reinforced by the void of the staircase. The visual linkage across zones maintains family connection, paramount to functional design.
Lime washed oak herringbone floors are a subtle and elegant foundation for the palette, which integrates a measured balance of timber, concrete, steel and glass. Tempering strong rectilinear forms are subtle curves throughout. Seen in the ensuite walls, entrance joinery, above the fireplace and in the circular roof cut-out, curves disrupt and complement while marrying the spaces. Movement across the abode is encouraged by open passage through to the main volume of the home. Flanked by glass, the master suite is granted lighted privacy and outlook by fluted glass panels separating the living area and transparent sliding doors to the pool’s decking. A further three bedrooms are found upstairs, enjoying their own separate living space beyond the landing with a balcony to observe the opposite golf course.
