This house is adjacent to a lakeside reserve and its elevated position creates great view opportunities to the north and west, whilst it seeks shielding from the main road along its eastern boundary.
Living and bedrooms are all on one level and a central rear courtyard provides an area for private dining as well as opportunities for light and cross ventilation into other rooms. Situated in a heritage precinct, the design celebrates the dynamic of the site with long sweeping roof planes, textural wall finishes with hues of grey/green and rust.
Bedrooms and studies are carefully zoned away from each other and enjoy very different aspects. Kitchen/dining/living is very much part of one entertainment zone with small nuances in the plan shape providing individual expression of each function within the space. The extended larder provides a space for noisy preparation which might otherwise overpower the main space.
