Opulent Beachy Retreats

The Point Lonsdale Beach House Embraces Nature in Its Design

— August 17, 2011 — Art & Design
The Point Lonsdale Beach House name seems to be tempting enough to get me to look through pictures of this opulent abode, and yet the name itself may not even do it justice. This stunning design by the Australian architectural firm Baenziger Coles is an outdoor-lover's dream retreat.

The owners of the Point Lonsdale Beach House admit to having a passion for fishing, surfing and the environment, as is clear when looking at the design and decor of this home. With a focus being placed on the connection to the outdoors through floor-to-ceiling windows, a timbered exterior and lush landscaping, this abode is provides an eco-sanctuary for its owners.

Implications - Consumers continue to yearn to further their connections with wildlife and natural surroundings. While the interior of homes was once heavily stressed, contemporary consumers now demand as much focus being placed on connecting them to the outdoors. Products that allow users to establish relationships with the environment will continue to out-succeed those that don't.

3. Eco-sanctuaries - Designing homes that provide a sanctuary for owners to escape to, while also being environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly.
