A home amongst the gumtrees…
Situated in direct proximity to a lush nature reserve, one could be mistaken for thinking this striking dual occupancy dwelling was located in a rural setting. Countershade was an exercise in downsizing without compromising quality or connection to outdoor space.
A calming ambience kindles within, cloaking inhabitants with a warm and homely sensation that is nurtured through the highly considered palette. Manuka toned joinery adds a softness to the robust materials of concrete and stone, mimicking the shadows that fall beneath the tree canopy.
The dappled light that casts through the venetians, the subtle rustle of the trees, and the breeze flowing through the house. Countershade suggests biophilic connections that are a true celebration of the landscape. Whilst Countershade is a dual occupancy development, it was foremost a process of understanding and encompassing the principles that underpin a home.
