First Lessons House

Designed by Ray Dinh Architecture, this spectacular L-shaped residence in Australia overlooks the Portsea Lagoon and Wildlife Reserve. The First Lessons House sits low amongst the existing myrtle and tea-trees, at the back corner of the site, it features external charred timber cladding, concrete and corrugated iron, that were chosen as robust, earthy materials and are softened by the natural light and landscape. The house is designed to entertain family and friends, it features large sliding doors that disappear behind walls to offer an uninterrupted view and seamless transition to the garden. The deck is an extension of the open plan living area, and the fireplace is the focal point of the indoor/outdoor living spaces. From Spring to Autumn, most dinners are outside between the Kitchen and BBQ.
