Life By The Ocean
A reflection by KARL FENDER
FOR MANY YEARS I’VE BEEN TANTALISED BY THE THOUGHT OF LIVING BY THE OCEAN. Much of my early residential work was located around Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay, and each house was designed to maximise its visual, and, where possible, physical connection to the sea.
Engagement with the waterfront made those homes very special, and I have to confess that at the time I concealed more than a little envy when the keys to my clients’ new homes were handed over. Each unlocked a new lifestyle enriched by the majesty and magnitude of the sea.
The moods of the ocean are profound and ever changing. The dynamic between rhythms of the moving surface and the rich colours of the water is hypnotic. Changing weather patterns can be subtle yet dramatic, amplifying the beauty of the sky. Living with the water’s presence is a unique experience quite distinct from merely visiting.
The constantly changing seascape becomes part of daily life, a joyous and surprising part of rising in the morning and settling into the evening.
Of course, the obvious pleasures associated with downtime on sandy beaches can’t be overstated. Whether it’s building sand castles in the sun, a swim in the restorative mineral-rich waters, a beachside jog, relaxed sunbathing, or, for the more adventurous, kite surfing on a windy day, the beach—particularly St Kilda—offers so much to pleasure- and thrill-seekers alike. Australia’s most unique beach provides a great counterpoint to the often gruelling demands of daily life. And in this incredible location, the added attractions of fine beachside restaurants, playgrounds, theatres, the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, the Sea Baths and countless architectural marvels beckon daily with invitations to charm and delight.
THE MOODS OF THE OCEAN ARE PROFOUND AND EVER CHANGING.
