The Client brief was to create a liveable, welcoming, casual, flexible family home utilizing honest natural materials.

The residence was designed to capture the north sun in a central courtyard whilst enabling the views to the south west.

The courtyard and deck areas provide alternative outdoor living areas as an extension to the indoors.

The extensive use of timber lining boards as the main external cladding along with significant timber posts provide a durable, environmentally appropriate finish with recognition of the homes natural setting.

Plywood ceilings and reclaimed timber joinery in the kitchen have been used in conjunction with polished timber flooring.

The use of reclaimed timber has embodied character that invites conversation.
