Bed + Bauhaus Experience

Bed + Bauhaus at Yallingup offers guests two well-designed and beautifully crafted suites finished in a contemporary Scandinavian design style that is refreshingly different.

Bed + Bauhaus combines convenience – ideal short-stay accommodation in the center of this vibrant holiday region – with comfort and a modern city studio apartment feel. The open-plan layout and ceilings up to 3m create a sense of spaciousness, light and air, complete with furniture that is both functional and inspiring. Material finishes (and cleaning products) are environmentally responsible and eco-friendly (e.g. VOC free), providing a hygenic, healthy indoor environment.

The property has been designed by kwokka to take advantage of the views looking west over Millbrook Valley towards Yallingup, with floor to ceiling glass opening onto a lawns both sides; on the west towards magnificent sunsets, and to the east side for sunrise.

The passive-solar construction ensures maximum thermal comfort, with double glazing, cross-ventilation window positioning, superior insulation, fans and concrete floors for thermal mass. Each suite has a reverse-cycle air conditioner for fine-tuning temperature to individual guest preferences.

The guest suites are located in a separate wing of an architectural complex incorporating living quarters, design studio and a large workshop – a project documented as ‘Maison de Cour Yallingup – an Australian courtyard house‘. This prototype building attracted the interest of Grand Designs Australia as the first WA project for the series, until the construction schedule extended beyond filming deadlines; the single task of recycling and dressing jarrah for the 60 windows alone took 3 months!

Bed + Bauhaus welcomes all types of guests – professionals on business trips, academics/students on research/writing retreats, short-break travelers from Perth or interstate visiting family or friends, and overseas tourists. This is the right place to stay for anyone who is inspired by design, motivated by creativity and seeks healthy lifestyle choices.

Stay Simply: Simply Stay

IMG_5901aIn creating the visitor experience at Bed + Bauhaus we sought a fresh approach to temporary accommodation and found it in the roots of the Scandinavian design movement.  Characterized by simplicity and minimalism, and emerging from the functionalism that the Bauhaus school in Germany espoused, it evolved from a desire to enhance the quality of life through appropriate and affordable products and technology.  Scandinavian designers sought an optimum balance between the practical (form, function, resources) and the emotional or ‘hygge‘ (comfort, well-being, joy), an approach reflected at Bed + Bauhaus.

Gentle on the environment, gentle on you:

You might wonder why there are no cooking (or laundry) facilities at Bed + Bauhaus.  While we are happy to make up nosebags, we encourage you to explore all the wonderful local eateries, fine producers at farmers markets, and delightful places (beach and forest) to picnic!  Our state-of-the-art Aerobic Treatment Unit (ATU) is home to waste digesting enzymes that hate fats and oils, anti-bacterial soaps, chemicals and all mainstream types of toilet paper (polymer glue).  We like to keep them happy so they efficiently process all wastewater, while you enjoy a break from cooking and take your taste buds on an adventure.  You are welcome to graze in your suite on the wonderful gourmet food from local eateries and fine produce from farmers markets, but please do not use the bathroom sink to wash anything up.  We ask you to put all your dirty crockery in a tub for us to take away, clean and return to your suite.  Likewise we as that you only flush the enzyme friendly toilet paper supplied.

Please note: If guests have been in transit for a while and require clothes washed or food re-heated, we are happy to assist where possible.
