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.
