This new build is located in elevated tranquil bush setting. An elongated
living platform is positioned along the southern edge of the site capitalizing
on magnificent views across to Mount Cootha. A floating roof form follows
the land contours and shelters a bedroom wing that steps up the hill.
The resulting L shaped plan then orientates itself to the desirable north
eastern aspect, harboring a courtyard that enjoys breezes and
views through the house.
The house addresses vegetation and bushfire overlays through innovative
design solutions. In some places it embeds itself within the landscape it
occupies, whilst in others it floats lightly above the site.
