Cape Schanck House by Paul Morgan Architects

Situated in a site surrounding by native tea-tree on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula, the Cape Schanck house is a small single-level residence wrapped by timber decking.

The living zone is the most striking feature with sheer glass and open plan, and a large steel bulb collects rainwater from the roof provides cools to the space during summer.

Inspiration from architect:

This house is located in an area near rugged coastline subject to strong prevailing winds and sits within an expanse of native tea tree. The pattern of tree growth is caused by light stimulus, or phototropism. In this project the analysis of dynamic forces – wind energy, wind turbulence and phototropism – have informed the modeling of the building envelope.
