A quality family home was the clients brief, in his words , "I'm only going
to build one house - so I'm going to do it right".
The site is steeply sloping with expansive views to the east. The house was
to be contemporary, utilise the natural slope of the land with split level
design and was to include a variety of materials. It was also to provide
efficient solar access and was to enjoy the eastern views, particularly
from the main bedroom suite.
The building is designed over 3 levels that step up the site. The front
facade, built over two storeys, is articulated to reduce the bulk of the
form from the street. Visitors are greeted in the entry foyer with a 7.2m
high ceiling and a custom designed forged steel balustrade. The living and
outdoor areas extend along the entire northern side of the residence. The
family living area and main bedroom are afforded spectacular lake, suburban
& rural views over eastern Wagga Wagga. The rear of the house is
nestled into bushland reserve to the west .
Increased ceiling height through the centre of the living areas creates
interesting changes in volume. Quality finishes combine to complement this
light filled, spacious home.
