The owners of this Augusta property desired a home that was robust in appearance and that would age gracefully over time. designed by busselton-based d’Agostino + luff Architects, the home provides maximum privacy from the street, and makes a feature of the vast ocean views across Flinders bay.

The home is low-maintenance and makes use of materials that fit in with the property’s surrounds. d’Agostino + luff Architects used a combination of face brick, spotted-gum external timber lining, and copper feature elements and facings. the home’s design includes a simplistic single-storey elevation to the street, which hides the striking two- storey fac?ade that incorporates a large cantilevered balcony.

The combination of timber-lined parapet walls of varying heights created a number of elements that look like shipping containers, and the spotted-gum wall lining will age over time to a silvery colour. Copper blades were used near the entry area to provide a striking, contrasting feature to the timber and the necessary support for the cantilevered entry cover.

The lower level of the home includes three bedrooms and a living space, while the upper floor contains the main bedroom, study and open-plan living area. d’Agostino + luff Architects designed the home to ensure each habitable room features views of the bay.

The home also boasts a sheltered courtyard on the northern side of the block, which offers an external retreat that will remain calm during strong winds.

D’Agostino + luff Architects was founded in 1996 by Joseph d’Agostino and stuart luff, who joined forces after studying together at university. the company specialises in residential architecture, but also designs for the commercial sector. it completes three to four homes each year.

With a distinct south-west feel, homes designed by d’Agostino + luff Architects are the result of more than 20 years of experience and local knowledge of the southwest of the state.
