Studio Esteta: Portsea Beach House

I’m came across a picture of this stunning kitchen on Instagram and a quick research led me to the website of Melbourne based architectural and interior design practice Studio Esteta.

The kitchen is part of the Portsea Beach House, located along the coastline of Port Phillip Bay. The understated character of the house is reminiscent of the modernist era and adopts a sympathetic palette that draws inspiration from the surrounding coastal context.

The Client brief sought to rejuvenate the existing double storey residence, whilst maintaining the existing building footprint. In response, decorative lighting and key furniture pieces were sourced through vintage ateliers. Also of significance to the family was a key art piece ‘Boat Sheds on Fisherman’s Beach by Sally Joubert’. The tactile palette consisting of slatted wall panelling, bagged white walls, warm timbers and accents of natural stone (reminiscent of the glistening coastline) work cohesively together to create an unpretentious and modern seaside home.
