[margaret river residence]
Set amongst the picturesque vines of a family owned vineyard just south-west of Margaret River, the owners of this house and business wanted a place where they could enjoy the region with family and friends.
They wanted to enjoy the southerly outlook over water and vegetation, both natural and cultivated, while at the same time providing south and north facing external living areas that suit seasonal variations. The layout of the residence along the natural contour lines responds to views within the site, while maintaining solar access to the interior thermal mass elements.
All living areas are connected to the south-facing deck overlooking the dam and to the north-facing honed concrete terrace that enjoys access to the northern sun and adjoining bushland. A rammed earth wall forms the spine to the residence and provides the thermal mass element to the bedrooms and ancillary areas.
My role on this project started in the documentation stages, continuing on to interior and exterior selections and finishes, internal cabinetry drawings and specifications were integral to creating a well-rounded and complete building.
