Monarch Grove | Diana Blake Design, Architect



Nestled down a long drive and tucked into a sunlit corner, sits this compact coastal hideaway. Vertical, dark cedar cladding and a prominent asymmetrical tray roof provide a striking first impression and foreshadow the strong focus on line and shape that continues throughout the house.

Retractable Louvre sliders along the edge of the decking offer privacy and protection, and provide a seamless transition between the outdoor entertainment area and the open plan, warm-timber interior of the home.
