Ocean House - Robert Mills Architects and Interior Designers

26th Jan 2015

The modern Robert Mills Architects and Interior Designer's aesthetic in its purest essence, Ocean House is a study in harmony. Raw concrete and polished timber blend seamlessly with the forest to create a calming retreat. Visual beauty is matched by thoughtful interiors that allow friends to gather by the beach, while floor-to-ceiling glass and nautical-inspired terraces offer views across Loutit Bay to Lorne.

Sculpted from concrete, timber and glass amid the eucalyptus and decorated to the highest standard with objects and furniture from Robert Mills’ favourite artists and designers, it brings relaxed luxury to Victoria’s stunning west coast.

Available to rent, Ocean House is unlike any other luxury accommodation found in Victoria – a unique wilderness experience that makes the ocean below and the forest above integral elements. With circular bedrooms, wrap-around terraces, a rooftop deck with open air bath, velvet soft polished concrete and the most stylish, comfortable furniture from cutting edge-designers including Piero Lissoni and Patricia Urquiola, Ocean House is unrivalled.

The result is an immaculately handcrafted, five-bedroom, three living area beachside refuge, designed by Robert Mills in his unique style. A carefully considered, flexible floor plan allows it to easily accommodate several families, a large extended family or groups of friends in privacy.

Warm in winter, cool in summer, Ocean House is the perfect base whether exploring nearby waterfalls or fishing for the evening’s BBQ. The rooftop bath is a decadent reward after completing the Pier to Pub swim, Mountain to Surf walk or Amy Gillett cycle. A day at the beach couldn’t be easier with secluded North Lorne beach outside your front door. Alternatively, take a walk in the forest behind, recline on the daybeds or enjoy evening drinks on the rooftop terrace for an idyllic Lorne luxury getaway.
