This unique custom designed home was commissioned by an owner-builder client to replace their existing dwelling on the site. The key consideration was sustainability, orientation, and flexibility. The dwelling is single storey, whilst maintaining a large, north-orientated garden which spills out from the north facing living areas.
The home provides spacious, flowing planning, yet allows for flexibility. The house has 3-bedrooms, with a rumpus or fourth bedroom. The master bedroom has a study which doubles as a north facing sitting room.
The form of the building follows a low single pitch roof with over-sized eaves to respond to the sites orientation. The house is typically clad in black stained shadowclad timber, with elements of brick work, and deep recessed windows. Feature timber battens highlight the entry passage and outdoor areas.
