Simply clad with Corten steel and recycled timber, the home is positioned on the crest of a gentle hill and surrounded by paddocks with scattered trees. Northern orientation allows winter sunlight and warmth to penetrate through a series of large operable glazed panels, whilst in summer, large fixed eaves keep the hot summer sun at bay. The house has been designed to be practically "indestructible" in accordance with client requirements - resulting in an easy cleaning, low maintenance, robust dwelling.
