Apollo Bay VIC, 2002
Three bedroom house sited on steep terrain to exploit views of the sea. A difficult site exposed to the elements and changeable weathers. Land slip and the visibility of the site from the valley below were also important considerations in the design response.
Mornington Peninsula VIC, 2002
Large weekender overlooking Westernport Bay. Located to the rear of what was a grassed site so as to gain elevation and access to views of Phillip Island. Setting the house to the rear of the site also increased privacy and gained bonus views to abutting farmland at the back. Large areas of north facing glass catch winter sun with summer sun controlled by blinds.
Bulla VIC, 2008
House on steep escarpment farmland northwest of Melbourne (construction images). The house nestles amongst rock outcrops and looks down into the Deep Creek valley. The plan form responds to the native rock and to the prevailing winds. Sheltered outdoor areas are formed by the irregular layout. The arrangement of spaces also allows a hierarchy of privacy from the ‘public’ living areas at one end to the ‘private’ bedrooms at the other. The twists and turns of the layout enable differing vistas to be captured from the variety of window orientations.
