Sitting on a wind-swept hill overlooking the Bass Straight, Inverloch by Michael Ellis Architects is a family retreat featuring materials chosen for their longevity.

Employing a play on volume and light, Woodland House II is imagined as a vibrant contemporary home that feels generous on its modest site. Sgourakis Architects’ Director Henry Sgourakis speaks to the process of designing his own home, creating a sense of balance and injecting textural interest throughout. Located just outside of Melbourne, Woodland House II is a study in scale and proportion, utilising access to natural light and internal volumes to amplify and counter the traditional home.
