A rough terrain and undulating landscape do not stop the architects from shaping a dramatic vacation home that the whole family can enjoy. An open living area along with kitchen and dining are set at the rear of the property and towards the glass façade while the front of the house holds the more private bedrooms. A dream escape in every sense of the word!
Stone wood and polished modern finishes are brought together effortlessly even as brilliant accent lighting puts the final touches on a family home that veers towards the natural. Steeping in gives you the impression of walking into a secluded serene and rejuvenating setting which is removed from urban rush.
It is the parlor level that contains the ten-foot-high living area with a custom bookshelf that which is cleverly extended to fashion a circulation space for the two cats in the house.
Clad in white and punctured by the beautiful placed windows throughout the structure the façade is a blend of traditional rural design and modern aesthetics with insulation and privacy being top priorities.
Designed by GITC Arquitectura to overcome these initial hurdles the contemporary family house sits on a specially designed base as the nature of soil on the agricultural lot was simply not conducive for construction.
Unbelievable as it may sound; this expansive Aussie home does indeed sit exactly between a giant rock on one side of the house and another on the other side! And yet Wolf Architects manages to turn what seems like a crippling handicap into an advantage as they used the rocky terrain to their advantage with a stunning basement that is etched into the formation along with a super-cool six car basement.
