Somers Beach House occupies a prominent beach fronted property overlooking Westernport, Phillip Island and Bass Strait beyond. The Wellard Architects designed house has two generous levels acting independently of one another as an inter-generational holiday house.

A detailed build sequence meant that we completed the boat shed on the water’s edge first, before commencing the expressed steel structure of the main house on the steepest section of the site.

“Tim and the team at Fido Projects are a pleasure to deal with. Not only do they go to the extra effort of following through and reviewing complex details with the design team before executing on site, but they are wonderful communicators and have obviously focused on working together with trades that share their same vision and appreciation for detail. Fido’s follow up service post completion is also excellent. Relationships are a cornerstone of their business and it shows.”
