Material: Recycled timber lining, corrugated iron
Location: Hepburn Shire
New holiday house recently finished. Due to the sensitive nature of the undulating site, it was decided that minimal site disturbance and zero site excavation would be the most appropriate course of action. The house sits on a split-level timber sub-floor, allowing for the natural flow of rainwater run-off over the site.
Designed on a modest budget, the simple form of the house is articulated with a rich palette of materials and textures which address a medium level bushfire risk. An internal mudbrick wall provides a thermal sink to the centre of the house while also providing spatial seperation between the living areas and amenities.
