Bones House in Bells Beach, Victoria
12 Aug 2021
Architecture: Lachlan Shepherd Architects
Location: Bells Beach, Victoria, Australia
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.
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.

The upper volume of the building hovers above a landscaped mount that creates the beginning of a journey into the house. Flanked by existing neighbouring brick walls, that become internal edges which establish a dialogue between old and new.
