Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Originally, this site situated in a rural area outside Ballarat in Australia was occupies by an early 80s house with an A frame design and only two bedrooms.

The architects’ interest in the “interplay of materials, light, form and detail” materialized in a modern design which cantilevers over the hillside and offers beautiful views over the tree canopies from the upper levels.

An imposing fireplace with firewood storage built into the supporting structure adorns the main lounge area. Huge windows and sliding doors open the area to the exterior and, at the same time let in the natural light emphasizing spaciousness.

The dining area on a slightly raised plan. Surrounded by wood paneling and featuring white beams with an interesting geometric structure, this area feels particularly warm and welcoming. Of course, huge windows offer it views of the surroundings.
