The Lagoon House is situated at Pacific Harbour’s main canal entrance on Bribie Island in Queensland, Australia, and was designed by Robin Payne to reflect its subtropical locale. The client’s wanted water views from every room and a 5-star resort-type feel and from the looks of it, that’s just what they got
The home was built around an artificial lagoon that surrounds three of the four guest suites and adds a barrier between the house and a public park to the west. The second floor cantilevers out offering sun protection to the bottom floor’s living spaces.
The guest rooms are outfitted with private terraces that reach the edge of the lagoon’s water with views of the lush tropical surroundings.
The open floor plan joins the living room, kitchen, and entertaining areas, which are surrounded by frameless, sliding glass walls that disappear and unite the indoors with the outside. With the lagoon right off of it, it’s easy to take a dip at any time.
