Windy Seaside Cabin Dazzles at Night with Decorative Timber Screens

In the Australian state of Victoria sits Moonlight Cabin, a remote hideaway that overlooks the windy coastline. The stunning structure was designed by local firm Jackson Clements Burrows Architects for a young family, intended to give them refuge while providing sweeping views of the gorgeous locale.

The modern building comprises a single story with a living room and kitchen at one end and sleeping space in the rear. An adjoining area of sheltered decking provides a protected look at the outdoors. It has a rustic timber construction, and proves that a building can dazzle with just this single material–the perforated screens, although simple in design and patterning, create a radiating display when the house is lit at night.
