John Wardle Architects designed this coastal home facing the Heads of Port Philip Bay to maximize access to sunlight. A courtyard in the middle allows natural light to stream through each corner of the property. The thin frame is carefully organized to allow private and communal spaces, with a master bedroom that faces the ocean. In order to reconcile the home's southern facing structure with the northern solar orientation, certain aspects of the home are specifically designed for northern access. The courtyard takes advantage of the afternoon sun, while the master bedroom faces south, toward the ocean.
