This is an exciting project that required the design and build of a very large contemporary house in a sensitive rural location. The site was an initial challenge as it is on different levels and we therefore bedded the one and a half storey house into the landscape. It forms a sharply curved boomerang shape with stunning views to the north. We decided to follow the natural progression of the land in the design, creating a simple continuous ridge for the house, broken by four tall and dramatic chimneys. The openings are large, with contemporary flowing spaces and a grand-scale central double volume gallery hall linking the two sides of the house.
