HOUSE ON THE RIDGE

A CLEAR BRIEF, A PHENOMENAL SITE AND A GREAT CLIENT. THAT’S WHAT IT TOOK TO CREATE THIS HOME IN THE HINTERLAND OF BYRON BAY.

A COLLABORATION OF ARCHITECTURE, LANDSCAPE, INTERIORS, BUILDER AND CLIENT.

A DESIGN THAT PAYS ITS DUES TO ASIANĀ  INFLUENCES WITH A SITE RESPONSIVE APPROACH TO “FIT” AND AESTHETIC. THIS HOUSE IS DESIGNED TO “WEAR WELL” – BOTH IN THE CONTEXT OF SITE, WHERE THE LANDSCAPE WILL ULTIMATELY TAKE OVER AND THE HOUSE WILL DISAPPEAR, AND IN THE USE OF MATERIALS, USING NATURAL & ROBUST MATERIALS THAT ONLY LOOK BETTER WITH AGE – RAMMED EARTH, LOCAL STONE, RECYCLED TIMBERS, ZINC, NATURAL TIMBER CLADDING, POLISHED CONCRETE. EVERY ROOM HAS A VIEW, EVERY SPACE IS AN EXPERIENCE. LIGHT, AIR AND GARDEN BLEND INTO THE EXPERIENCE OF A HOUSE DESIGNED AND BUILT FOR RELAXATION AND ENJOYMENT IN A SENSATIONAL LOCATION.
