Seaview House by Jackson Clements Burrows

Seaview House is a project that mixes the rural with the tranquility of a place that brings the sea a little bit closer. This exquisite home located in Barwon Heads, Australia, has been designed by Jackson Clements Burrows.
Seaview House is unique in terms of architecture, showcasing a post-war beach structure with rural details. Divided in three pavilions, the spaces are smoothly connected by glazed links.
"The design of the house was carefully conceived to embrace the essence of the clients existing rural and coastal lifestyle and to accommodate the later stages of their lives."
Looking closer, the Seaview House reminds us of authentic American barns, only with an added element of sophistication, of course.
The pavilions are oriented South, Northwest and Northeast. The South pavilion provides an open-plan living space, with a long, corridor-like kitchen.
The main material used in defining the Seaview House is wood. Everything keeps its simplicity, from the decoration to the structure. The space is breezy and comfortable, giving that special feeling of relaxation we are all looking to find in the intimacy of our homes.
