Shoreham House II, an extension to an existing timber farmhouse on the Mornington Peninsula, focuses towards the dominant southern views and simple
materials used to respect the surrounding rural environment.
The creators, Claire Scorpo Architects is an award-winning practice, established in 2014. The firm places a strong emphasis on simplicity and connecting individual projects to their site and context.
Highlighting the southern views, the guest rooms form a wedge grafted onto the existing building, yet able to become closed off and independent. Keeping the timber theme, Claire Scorpo incorporated GOODWOOD Victorian Ash flooring throughout and GOODWOOD Victorian Ash window frames into the Shoreham II extension.
Director, Claire explains “Vic Ash sits beautifully with the simple material palette in our work. We love the golden blonde and pink tones, and even the grain that runs through the timber gives depth and warmth to our spaces. Being a sustainably sourced local material is also a big factor for us, with Vic Ash being specified for many of our projects”.
You can see why Victorian Ash is the popular choice for many, to read more about this beautiful timber, head to the GOODWOOD webpage today.
