This is the second home completed by Utz-Sanby for this family. The brief was for a relaxed, warm and inviting home with extensive use of timber and natural materials. The clients wanted to make the best use of available technology for heating, cooling, lighting and water collection and wanted to maximize the access to natural light, northern sun, ventilation and views. The house has been designed to be low maintenance and robust.
The two-storey recycled Australian Ironwood screen provides a new dynamic form for the building and informed the material palette for other elements of the building, which are a combination of old and new.
