Aireys House by Byrne Architects
Aireys House is a minimalist house located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by Byrne Architects. Aireys Inlet is a small coastal village known and loved for its quiet casual nature, a counterpoint to the higher density development creeping along the coastline from Torquay. For this project, the architects were fortunate enough to have a site high on the cliff line with spectacular views to the famous Aireys Lighthouse, Eagle Rock, Lorne and the ocean beyond. The house is essentially three levels, although both ground and first floor are split at key moments to take advantage of views and connect back to the landscape. A basement houses a three car garage, workshop and wine cellar. There are three bedrooms at ground level, with the master bedroom, living and kitchen on the first floor.
