New House in Warburton

On an elevated site set amongst native bushland with rolling hills to the north, The Wall withholds the view upon approach, presenting a mute block wall embedded into the site. Passing through this Wall via the compressed point of entry, the panorama is suddenly revealed to the viewer; and further heightened by the dramatic angled ceiling.

Rooms are anchored along the subtly shifting Wall, so that spaces unfold as one moves through the house. Each interior space becomes a framing device with subtle differences in the outlook from each room. Level changes are strategically placed to demarcate specific living zones as well as contributing to the sense of journey the inhabitant encounters as they navigate along the Wall. The rich, warm finishes continue beyond the glass line and the blurring of interior/exterior contributes to the sense of immersion within the landscape.
