As if they weren’t already lucky enough to be living on Hamilton Island just 50 miles west of the Great Barrier Reef (Google map) — these lucky home owners gets to do it in style as well. Check out this incredible home perched on a Hamilton Island hilltop, designed by the team at Renato D’Ettorre Architects. The home has won no less than three design awards, and you’ll see why in the beautiful photos below. The architects write, “The design of the house responds to its spectacular location near the edge of the ocean and its site falling steeply away towards the water’s edge on hamilton island. Simple, clean spaces are carved out of robust masonry, ensuring longevity and low future maintenance in the sub-tropical climate. The design philosophy is based upon the emphasis on the eternal elements of sun, sea and air in combination with the materials’ textural quality and honesty which makes the house invisible from the surrounds. Internal spaces wrap themselves around water and courtyards, capturing not only ocean views but also inward looking private vistas.” For all of my favorite homes be sure to visit Dream Homes on FEELguide.
