Dan, Nathan and Simone’s teams merged their design inspiration to create a collective vision for Nathan’s family home. They sought a clean, purposeful and elegant coastal residence that resonated with its relaxed Blairgowrie location.
The home sees a focus on quality finishes with a high level of detail. Webster Architecture & Interiors principal Dan Webster attributes the home’s relaxed and contemporary atmosphere to a desire for subtle differentiation from the usual beachside escape. “Many contemporary coastal homes are light in their colours and materiality, but this home attempts to challenge that through the use of charred timber and other earthy, rugged and durable materials and textures,” he says. “The simplicity in the exterior form and material palette also allows the home to sit in a newly created environment, that makes it have a sense of belonging, solidity and groundedness.”
