Wolveridge Architects' Torquay Residence project is located in the heart of the scenic Australian city -- the home embodies understated elegance thanks to a monumental facade that consists of slatted wood and glass fragments.

Juxtaposed against a barren desert setting, this abode consists of layered exterior volumes and is designed to withstand the elements -- a necessary requirement for most coastal architecture.

"In coastal conditions, buildings must be robust and defy the elements, yet create protective spaces, both internal and external which for us allow the occupants to feel safe and comfortable," said Wolveridge Architects' team when describing the project. Fusing function, durability and aesthetics, this Australian home is one that will appeal to local residents looking for a long-term residence that meets versatile needs.
