This is a home built to last. A home intended to provide for family generations to come.
The building form is a deliberately grounded simple skillion in concrete embraced by stone ‘ribbon’ walls creating protected side outdoors spaces that moderate scale at the boundaries. The walls ebb and flow around landscape features and culminate in the plunge pool and lower garden – casual and contrary to the formality of the concrete form and floor plan.
Internally the spaces transition from an open and expansive on the upper living level to a private and protective on the lower bedroom level where additional break out space is created under the generous stair.
Materiality focuses on achieving permanence, longevity, thermal mass, bushfire protection and low maintenance whilst creating a calm backdrop for light and shadow, reflection and outlook – intended to age with grace and develop patina in concert with the landscape it sits within.
