An Edgy New Residence Means Business
On an idyllic peak overlooking Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula seaside strip, an edgy new residence means business.

Acting as a business hub and permanent family base, this beautiful new home has been purpose-built as a sanctuary for work, rest and play by Miriam Fanning of Mim Design. What was the brief? As admirers of our clients’ business we were thrilled when they approached us for this project. It is an incredibly personal experience when a client entrusts us with the design of their home and it’s not uncommon for them to become friends – and this case was no exception.

We were engaged to undertake an architectural and interior design reflective of the property’s location on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. This was to be not just a weekend retreat or seaside escape but a permanent home for family and business to coexist.

The clients are regular entertainers so the design needed to integrate a private retreat at the front of the residence with a generous entertaining space at the rear. The brief was to create an authentic and timeless design that married mid-century modern with coastal influences without any sense of beachside cliché. The home also needed to showcase the clients’ business of similarly inspired furniture and decor.
