In collaboration with client and designers Jonathan Goss and Cathy Ellegard, this home has been expertly detailed and documented by Ben Hudson Architects.
The 220 square metre home utilises skilfully crafted and organised spaces to deliver a family home in a modest space without compromising on design. Adaptive spaces are able to be opened up or closed down to suit the family’s needs, allowing the couple and their two young children to live and work alongside each other.
The sloping site allows the main living spaces and bedrooms to be raised above the driveway for privacy and views. Vehicular access, garaging, laundry and a guest room are provided at the lower level. Sculpted concrete steps lead to the entry, with the dramatic backdrop of the Remarkables mountain range beyond.
The upper-level entry area links the living spaces to the east, and bedrooms and study areas to the west. The open plan living, dining and kitchen spaces form the heart of the home, with the gabled roof allowing for a double-height space over these areas, drawing light into the home and creating a feeling of openness.
