Project Overview

The design of this project was guided by two principles: a thoughtful response to the environment and a pursuit of elegant simplicity. Nestled on a hillside, we sought to create a home that seamlessly integrated with its surroundings while standing independently as an architectural statement. The client's desire for unobstructed views and protection from prevailing winds was a pivotal consideration. The initial design concept was proposed as a single-story X-shaped structure, creating outdoor pockets sheltered by the primary building form. This design ensured uninterrupted ocean views through the main pavilion, whilst fostering a constant connection to the outside. Simplicity was at the forefront of the design of this home. We developed the concept of a "flying roof", comprising two overlapping solid concrete roofs. The result is a home that the clients absolutely love living in, enhancing their quality of life. We are incredibly proud of this project as a practice.

Testimonial

“The home has exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of life it has delivered. It is aesthetically beautiful, and incredibly practical. The brief included a requirement for each room to take advantage of the incredible, rural and ocean views, which it has definitely maximised. Red Hill is a cold environment, and the house is designed to act as a heat bank, which is proving very effective. It is also an extremely windy environment, and the design provides multiple areas for sheltered entertaining and leisure activities. The house is zoned incredibly well, and allows for flexible entertainment.”
