Meet the unique award winning House at Big Hill, Australia designed by Kerstin Thompson Architects. The project was finished in 2011 and differs from the standard houses with a triangular plan, semi-recessed into the sloping site.
The client wanted to have a solid house, so the architects chose natural grey concrete blocks for the walls in combination with a dark roof. Numerous timber accents offset the cold feeling the concrete creates.
The house is orientated to take advantage of the 180 degree spectacular views towards the ocean, which are revealed through picture frame windows.
Timber window seats serve as a perfect spot for relaxation or reading. Modern interior design is combined with rustic accents to create a truly cozy feeling.
This house is in a complete unison with the beautiful west coast landscape.
