As the bone chill slowly lifts, our eyes turn to the distant horizon and the brightness of summer. Look! Here comes the perfect home for such seasonal observations. A gorgeously modest yet perfectly formed, fan shaped residence constructed with fire elements at the fore: terracotta tile, timber and our hardest crush at present; the ‘Clifton Grey’ brick, at one time a standard of a certain 70s, nature-influenced home building. We thank Secret Design Studio for pointing this one out, the work of local favourite Alistair Knox (from one Alistair to another!), and situated in one of the great hidden joys of this state, the Cowes end of Philip Island, with an Enid Blyton-esq address.
