The heavily vegetated block was previously home to a bush-walking track, which was used as the line for the original cut keeping the cut as minimal as possible on the site. The home has been designed to completely complement its bush setting, reflecting its relaxed and peaceful feel. After journeying up the driveway, the first vision of the home is breathtaking. The feature stonewall sets the ambience for the home - tranquil and working in harmony with its surroundings Flooded with natural light and ventilation, there is a large focus on the passive elements of the beautiful site and its form. A pool was created to play a major part in the passive ventilation of the home. Water storage has been incorporated underneath the pool, with separate rainwater tanks under the house for. This means that the residents do not have to rely on water supplies from local council, saving money on rates and allowing the house to utilise resources provided by the natural environment. The home also features a domestic sprinkler system, drawn from the pool, to fight any fires that enter the bush zone.
