Talented Architects Creating on the Mornington Peninsula

A stunning environment calls for a home to match. Working across the Peninsula, Dankor helps design and execute a range of projects across the Port Phillip area. We pride ourselves on the attention to detail and scrutiny afforded to each renovation, resulting in beautiful properties that harmonise with the surrounding environment.

A vision of modern seaside living

Australian coastal living has moved on from the bathing boxes of yesteryear. Completed in 2012, our Red Hill house project is exemplary of our practice’s approach and style. Initially a dilapidated property situated in the small rural community of Red Hill, the owner decided against the obvious choice of demolishing and rebuilding. Dankor was contracted to renovate the property. The decision was made by our architects and the client to redesign the space to showcase the versatility of timber, specifically plywood. Retaining the original frontage, the rear of the property was completely overhauled. The structure was linked to a renovated shed complete with open-plan kitchen, bathroom, laundry and bedroom that the client lived in during construction. Inside the main property, doors, frames, joinery and feature work were all constructed from different tones and hues of plywood. Predominantly lighter, blond timbers were chosen to provide a warm, welcoming environment that suits the location. The interior living space was reconfigured to provide better vision of the surrounding area. The living room was refitted to include over-sized 2.7m high windows, opening the space up and allowing occupants an uninterrupted view of the ocean. Our architects believe the Red Hill house is a fantastic realisation of our client’s wishes and showcases our design preferences and strengths. The Mornington Peninsula was the ideal location for the build, and we encourage property owners in the region to contact us to learn how we can transform their homes.
