Home Tour | Martini by Inglis Architects & Georgina Jeffries

  • Martini takes shape as a European-inspired holiday home for a young family of five on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, designed by Inglis Architects in collaboration with Georgina Jeffries.Our vision was to craft a beach house with a compelling aesthetic that would leave a lasting impression on the young children as they grow, evoking cherished memories of summers spent with family,” Inglis Architects founder Charlies Inglis says.

    Inglis Architects selected materials for their natural charm and unique imperfections, including solid timber, concrete benchtops, stone floors and mineral-finished walls.

    The dining space features a custom wood table by Made Studio.

    Inglis Architects conceived the architecture and interiors as an escape from Melbourne, where the family’s permanent home is located. “Creating an emotional separation from the city was a key priority, and since we had previously designed their Melbourne house, we could achieve this seamlessly,” Charlies says. The studio selected materials for their natural charm and unique imperfections, including solid timber, concrete benchtops, stone floors and mineral-finished walls. This palette manifests in sculptural elements such as the fireplace, island bench and stand-alone bar, forming a cohesive design language of simplicity and restraint. 

    Georgina Jeffries built on the existing design by adding a playful and relaxed layer of furniture, objects and art. “We wanted the place to feel like a big exhale – a sanctuary amongst the water and trees,” Georgina says. Thick textured rugs, soft linens and warm leathers complement Inglis Architects’ palette of natural wood and stone. This pared-backness is further explored in the dusty-coloured artworks and handmade objects peppered throughout the spaces. The Jahnne Pasco-White artwork in the living room is a personal favourite of Georgina’s, which sits above a custom bench built by Victoria-based studio Made.

    The rendered fireplace with a hammered-stone hearth is the living room’s focal point. The furniture’s muted tones exude a calming energy, including a creamy-yellow sofa. Also pictured are a pair of &Tradition Fly chairs.
