Located outside of Melbourne on a gently sloping site, this residence is composed of a series of split levels. It has an open-plan living area, with double-height windows providing gorgeous views of the surrounding nature and maximizing daylight. Blackened timber clads the exterior, making the house blend in beautifully with the landscape.

“We sought to create a quality of space that provides a sense of sanctuary, enclosure and comfort,” say the architects. “Emphasis was placed upon capturing the varying qualities of light, the scale and proportions of space, and providing a tangible connection with the building’s surrounds, both in topography and landscape.”

Stunning, right?
