An elegant country home for a young family, sitting peacefully amongst the landscape was the simple brief for this residence.
North orientated with dramatic westerly views, the deep veranda catches the northern sun light whilst protecting the west facing glass with a retractable veil.
Respite from the elements whilst still enjoying the external environment can be enjoyed from a private deck to the eastern side of the residence capturing cooling morning breezes.
Contrasting the effortlessness of traditional weatherboards, the permanence of masonry blockwork and local ironbark, the palette mimics the landscapes eucalypts, soft grasses and basalt covered ground. The monoslope roof tilting to the same pitch as the ridge below, ensures a comfortable siting within the landscape.
