The three-zone design of this stunning home ensures that the connection to the rural environment and nearby hills is consistent and captivating – both from inside the house and from the enclosed courtyard. The roof pitch references the hills and the house sits easily and naturally on the land.

Built of cedar, and incorporating a passive solar design with double glazing, super insulated walls and ceilings, and concrete floor slabs, the home captures heat from the sun to create a stable all year-round internal temperature of 18°C.
