Red Hill South
completed 2016

Built in a flood and bushfire zone on a semi-rural site, this new home provides a central common area straddled by a dormitory wing and a separate main bedroom wing. The arrangement of the home balanced the slope of the land, views to the south and desire for good direct natural light from the north.

Much of the design process was around drawing an optimum section. The section was then extruded across the site. The entry and living areas are expressed as inflections in the, otherwise singular, form. The cladding system is designed to accentuate the shimmer of the vertical tree shadows.
