The outline of the house is contemporary in its way to deal with configuration and created in its execution. The size of the house regards bordering neighbors. The site introduction and course of action of the assembled structures react and grasp the indigenous habitat at each open door, as does the utilization of nearby and reused materials.

There are numerous concealed fortunes, finely nitty gritty astonishments, hand made antiquities and knickknacks that have been woven into the configuration of the house, numerous just getting to be clear after closer examination. Not at all like the command hierarchy that takes pride of spot denoting the section, the 10 rooftop top mounted sun based boards are not clear and can’t be seen, nor can the overhang canals which have been taken cover behind the calculated timber clad cutting edges on the western and eastern exteriors – hiding the mechanics of the water collecting framework.

The utilization of legitimate, neighborhood and reused materials supplements the building’s feeling of spot in the setting of the neighborhood. Characteristic materials, for example, spotted gum run vertically on the upper level timber façade, and split face solid squares shape the “bookends”. Irregular example Castlemaine slate is utilized as the cook’s garment wrap up the house and as a pathway uniting with the nearby workshop and carport. The stone for the bended outer divider that grasps and characterizes the open air BBQ and suppers region was reused from the chimney smokestack and greenery enclosure bed walling of the past house.
