Located on the sand dunes of an ocean beach and nestled among native tea trees, nature informed Ryan Moody’s design on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula in Australia. Moody has created an architectural masterpiece perfectly suited to its seaside location, clad with natural materials including stone, timber and glass.


The stone elements are particularly fitting, particularly using Rhodes Architectural Stone’s newly quarried Amande Limestone for the internal and external wall cladding.


Aesthetically, Amande Limestone seamlessly blends with the cool beachside tones, and is also beautifully hand finished with an intricate, fine adze texture, making the new home looks as though it existed long before the house was built.


Indeed, the intricate hand finished point stalk details in the stonework, including quoins, have really set this project apart

Project Principles




As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
