case study - Project 1 (of nine)

The challenging topography of the site, dry forest environs and fantastic views inform the design for this multiple level family home and office. The use of various reclaimed and local natural materials give a rich textural quality to the exterior; the roof form and masonry base lending an alpine vernacular aesthetic. The interior has the feel of a tree house, with the narrow building depth allowing strong visual links to the bush and plenty of light intake. The main design brief is the creation of a warm and inviting building.
