House of the Week: Little Beach House, Big View


Every week, we highlight one amazing Dwell home that went viral on Pinterest. Follow Dwell's Pinterest account for more daily design inspiration.

Our readers were enamored with this compact Australian getaway that's just steps from the beach.

Floor-to-ceiling pivot doors and flushed skirting make the boxy space appear much higher and larger.
All windows are shaded by deep overhangs, minimizing solar heat gain.
The facade uses sustainably harvested and local PEFC-certified Australian timber cladding.
Elevating the home as opposed to excavating offers built-in protection against flooding from the riverbank.
