Entertainer’s delight: A home that blends space with scenery.

Designed for a couple who enjoy entertaining, the simple gabled form of this home enfolds a spacious living area. This space, bathed in natural light, forms the heart of the home and frames the perfect setting for a gathering. Large windows extend seamlessly out to the deck, and offer views of the surrounding peaks that become part of the living experience.


Integrating nature and design in architecture.

Three district materials, Glenorchy schist, cedar and glass have been used externally, contrasted with accents of charred larch. At the entrance, stone elements smoothly transition from exterior to interior, marking a sense of arrival and tying together the two gabled volumes that separately accommodate public and private spaces. Internally the design features natural oak flooring, dark stained timber joinery and Italian stone, combining to add warmth and richness to the home.

Meticulously detailed joinery, along with indoor and outdoor fires create a cozy haven and a place to admire the mountains’ ever-changing moods. This carefully crafted home not only fulfils functional needs but also elevates the everyday experience for its’ owners.
