Our brief for this project was to create a contemporary and adventurous home incorporating sustainable principles and comfortable living.
The sleek modern forms and dramatic floor plan are a contrast to the hillside rural setting and reflect our client's wishes to create a daring house that diverts from traditional design and construction methods. The dispersed plan separates the various areas into “pods” to allow zoned heating and cooling of the house to save energy whilst creating light drenched breezeways to connect each part of the home.
The sloping site offered a number of wonderful properties such as solar access and views to the valley. This heavily influenced the floor plan and overall concept which was centered around creating dramatic vistas through to prominent views around the site.
The client wished to follow the natural topography of the site resulting in numerous levels throughout the house to further accentuate the zoned planning and environmental control.
