At the rear, gallery stairs blend the terrace into the yard providing purpose to the required higher floor level due to site conditions.
A Tesla battery, including an electric car charging dock, is fed by a large solar panel range spread between the 32 degree north facing roof and flat roofs behind parapets for additional support.
Additionally, hydraulic in-slab heating fed by solar energy combined with powered louvers for effective airflow, mean the house is always comfortable as seasons change throughout the year.
We believe that this project is a genuine representation of the owners’ brief – it is simple and honest in its approach.
The design is based directly on what they needed, what they liked, and nothing more.
The craftsmanship involved in its construction is a real homage to the chosen materials and raw textures in both exterior and interior elements. No one material “screams” for attention, instead, they all work as a whole and talk to each other throughout the house.
The owner’s tech savviness and passion played a huge role on the smart features of the house.
The design approach, from our end, made the house a welcoming venture for all involved. It was ultimately the house’s own personality that made everyone feel part of it.
