With a country surrounded by water, it’s no wonder that the great Australian dream of house ownership can quickly extend to thoughts of a beach house. And with endless childhood memories of summers spent by the beach – swimming, sunbaking and playing sports – many of us are prone to imagine our future weekends and holidays lazing by the beach with family and friends.

Ask any homeowner about what they really ‘love’ in their homes and one of the answers is invariably their views. Connectivity to the outdoors, natural light and a feeling of space, all play a key part in what makes us happy – so much so that architects and designers have been steadily increasing the number and size of windows in many modern homes.

Perhaps that’s why the Modscape team are so drawn to their work and [...]
