Situated on a large rural property with expansive views stretching out to the distant Sunshine Coast and Pacific Ocean. The “H” shaped design of the house was inspired through exploration of the courtyard typology and the client’s desire for a very linear and modernistic aesthetic. Two perpendicular walls were established as spines for the house to be built against and were wrapped in natural stone to relate back to the natural landscape from which the house evolved. A north facing courtyard and glass atrium space provides the transition from front to rear, capturing natural light and providing a space that is protected from winter’s south-westerly winds.
