Somers Modular Home, Australia
Nestled in the south-eastern corner of the picturesque Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, this gorgeous beachside Somers Modular Home with stunning coastal views is all about luxury and natural light.
What was the brief?
The clients called on Modscape to design a knockdown rebuild project – a relaxing retreat they’d call home in the summer months. A place to welcome family – most notably their grandchildren – the home is a study in spacious design, maximising the bayside views, and the sustainability benefits of passive heating and cooling.
Accessibility is a key feature of the entire design, with a lift, extra-wide staircase, open bathrooms, and expansive hallways all essential aspects of the clients’ brief
How is the project unique?
Decorated with lush green local flora, the front- and backyards effortlessly connect to the inside of the home via large entrances. In fact, accessibility is a key feature of the entire design, with a lift, extra-wide staircase, open bathrooms, and expansive hallways all essential aspects of the clients’ brief. Said lift and stairs lead you to an open-plan living space, bathed in natural sun and lighter tones; while the entertainment area and kitchen make use of minimalist finishes that perfectly complement the beachside aesthetic.
What building methods were used?
Our Somers feature home showcases the power of modular to deliver a contemporary residential solution which is not only inviting and accessible, but also uncompromisingly luxurious.
