Jarchitecture designed Rhyll House in 2015. Located in the Australian small fishing town of Rhyll, Victoria, the house measures 360m² (3,875ft²).
A solid black box expands out of the ground, picking up more materials as it expands toward French Island and Western Port Bay. The top storey acts as a self-sufficient lookout for when it is in use by a single couple, while downstairs acts as a family extension, with focus placed on play around the pool, spa, barbeque deck and cinema. Upstairs is decadent in its finishes and complex plan while downstairs is laid out and finished more simplistically; there is a play off between warm rustic materials and contemporary decadence.
