A Dreamy Seaside Artist’s Studio On A 19th Century Farm

Of all the fantasies in all the world, being an artist, working in a dreamy studio by the sea is dream-come-true material. To do so on a 19th-century farmhouse property, with panoramic views across the Bellarine Peninsula is simply the stuff of fairytales!

The owners of historic Spray Farm on the Bellarine Peninsula engaged Watts Studio and Amiconi Architect to design a new studio on the ocean side of the property where the pair of artists could spend days painting and looking out over the sea. Taking the heritage-listed homestead and the history of the farmhouse locale as inspiration, the designers created a space greatly informed by surrounds but with its own contemporary characteristics.

Read the full story here.

The Bendalong House was originally designed as a beach house but the design was so successful, it became the client’s full-time residence! Photo – Robert Walsh.


Community-oriented design was paramount; the clients didn’t want to construct anything too flashy or ostentatious that wouldn’t be in-keeping with the area. Photo – Robert Walsh.
