Heavily inspired by its surrounds, the timber cladding façade resonates with both the large oak trees decorating the street, and the open view of the Dandenong Ranges.
Intended as a multi-generational home, with grandparents and family living together, the external outcrops reflect the niches that belong to the residents within. Each person is granted a sense of space, both shared and private.
Maintaining privacy, the interiors are flooded with natural light through strategically placed windows and large skylights. A neutral palette of natural timbers and stone reflect the dynamic surroundings and create a strong connection between the interiors, landscape and architecture.
The environment is expressed in a more tangible form via the central green stone column. Connecting the three floors of the home, the commanding feature is wrapped by a floating staircase, allowing more intimate interactions with the material as you move throughout the levels of the home.
