Built over 4 Levels, this dynamic home had to respond to a very irregular building envelop, an extremely steep site with an adjacent gully, very difficult site access, heavy vegetation and a BAL40 / flame zone bushfire rating. The modern black box – purposeful angular forms and sharp lines were embraced while concrete elements and brass touches brought the finesse. Matte Black steel external cladding was adopted for protection and low maintenance, and blackbutt internal lining utilised for warmth and character. The A large north facing upper clerestory window was conceived to provide passive solar gain as the main windows face south toward the ocean views.
