Location: Kangaroo Valley, NSW, Australia

Kangaroo Valley House is sited near an escarpment edge and surrounded by a rugged bushland context. A meandering approach road allows a gradual revealing of the house that appears defensive and deceptive in scale.

The house is made up of a family of containers, roofed and open to the sky. The geometry of the house is simply orthogonal forming quietly arranged spaces within a dramatic natural landscape. The simplicity of the spatial configurations and overall form belie the ability of the building to offer different living patterns that respond to seasonal and diurnal changes.

Outside the winter months, the terrace, living volume and southern external courtyard represent an extended flexible living space, orientated north south, whilst in the colder months, living is internalised in an east west direction with open fireplace as the focus.

Concrete is used as a robust material where connections to the ground are made echoing the massive organic rock shelf formations. Copper is used as a crafted and patinaed surface the colour of which makes a connection the hues of the surrounding tall Bloodwood’s and Stringybark’s. Timber is used on the external living surfaces as a rich but domestic contrast to the cladding and structural materials.
