House Perched on Central Column Overlooks Ocean on 3 Sides

The Pole House is an iconic holiday house in Fairhaven, Australia that was originally designed and built in the 1970s by Frank Dixon and has recently gone through a redesign by Franco Fiorentini of F2 Architecture.

house-perched-central-column-overlooks-ocean-3-sides-12-bedroom-thumb-630xauto-40407

Already a stunning example of architecture as sculpture, the upgrades have taken the interior spaces to a whole new level of luxury.

house-perched-central-column-overlooks-ocean-3-sides-11-kitchen-thumb-630xauto-40405
The slope the home sits on is steep and falls quickly away from entrance walkway. This sudden drop of the landscape gives the home the appearance of being suspended in mid air, especially from the wrap around terrace.
While not directly on the waterfront, the position of the home is such that the highway below is not visible from inside.

house-perched-central-column-overlooks-ocean-3-sides-9-core-thumb-630xauto-40401

While not the only home on the slope, it is the last in line, which means the home has complete privacy on one side.
The home is positioned diagonally to the entry ramp, and the two sides exposed to the ramp are kept closed and private, while the two sides overlooking the ocean are covered in glazings.

dune-house-wows-with-dynamic-vaulted-ceiling-detail-9-thumb-630xauto-41272

As far as Australian beach houses go, this one isn’t your average bear. Timber houses like these are few and far between, encompassing natural sophistication that doesn’t compromise on its earthiness or its elegance.

dune-house-wows-with-dynamic-vaulted-ceiling-detail-10-thumb-630xauto-41274

The wood clad house boasts Pacific teak exteriors while inside, recycled tallow-wood floors, white-painted cedar ceilings and walls, and solid cedar cabinets. Speaking of which, the piece de resistance is without a doubt this amazing angled ceiling detail, with a break forming the spine of the open concept living and dining space.

dune-house-wows-with-dynamic-vaulted-ceiling-detail-13-thumb-630xauto-41280

The home’s facade features a simple shoebox shape, clad in Pacific teak with massive picture windows to let the view in.
dune-house-wows-with-dynamic-vaulted-ceiling-detail-15-thumb-630xauto-41284

Terraces on the upper and lower level integrate indoor and outdoor living. The alfresco entertaining areas and those tucked behind the vast glazed facades disappear into one another for a seamless, open look wrapped in the timber structure.

A large driveway ushers you into this low-profile, understated home, where the windows offer small sneak peeks inside.

Inside, the firth thing that stands out on entry – apart from the views – are the rick, recycled wood floors. Follow their grainy texture and warm, cognac hues deeper into the home.

Vertical T-Shaped Hilltop House Exposes Views on all 4 Sides

Positioned on the peak of a hill and approached by a long curving access road, Clearhouse has been designed by Michael P. Johnson in collaboration with Stuart Parr Design to take advantage of the panoramic views on all four sides of the home.

vertical-t-shaped-hilltop-house-views-4-sides-16-stairs-thumb-630xauto-42424

Located on Shelter Island, NY, USA, Clearhouse is surrounded on three sides by a lush forest and on the fourth by the Atlantic Ocean.

vertical-t-shaped-hilltop-house-views-4-sides-16-dining-thumb-630xauto-42420

An integral part of the design was to keep the parking area of the home exposed to allow the views to travel through to the front yard, this opening up of the carport creates an impression of a vertical T as the home cantilevers out on both sides of a central access column.

vertical-t-shaped-hilltop-house-views-4-sides-18-kitchen-thumb-630xauto-42426

Even the drive up to the home is a picture perfect setting of heavily foliaged trees and softly rolling hill. The landscape is so beautiful that the home all but disappears in it thanks to the see through aspect of the glass exterior walls.

vertical-t-shaped-hilltop-house-views-4-sides-20-kitchen-thumb-630xauto-42430

And the soft tones of the concrete that blend harmoniously with the driveway and the hazy distant sky and ocean.

vertical-t-shaped-hilltop-house-views-4-sides-22-bedm-thumb-630xauto-42434

Even upon arrival, the show stopping aspects of Clearhouse does not overpower the various views, in fact the volume of the vista perspectives has been further enhanced by the strategic placement of large boulders next to the driveway.
