Tidal Arc House by Simone Haag, with Woods Bagot and Hecker Guthrie
No stranger to dressing a dark space, Simone Haag turned heads with her moody and mysterious Fitzroy North home in last year’s AIDA shortlist. With interior design by Hecker Guthrie, the home is framed in exposed timber beams, also seen in their unique Shou-sugi ban Home in Toorak.
Challenging the stereotypes of the quintessential Australian beach house, Tidal Arc House in Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula references the home’s surrounding ominous cliffs, playing on a spectrum of charcoal and anthracite tones throughout. Simone Haag, with Woods Bagot and Hecker Guthrie have flipped the traditional coastal home completely, without compromising on design, form or function.
