This home designed for the hills behind Byron Bay makes the most of the distant views rolling down from the site. It is surrounded by productive gardens, including an orchard, leading to the feature swimming pool perched in the landscape above a lake: landscape concept by Myles Baldwin.
Wrapping veranda’s step to the site in every direction, encouraging easy access to enjoy the site each day as part of homestead living.
A vaulted central roof section creates very high ceilings in the home, allowing heat to be vented and bringing natural light to the library room in the heart of the home.
Open living spaces link to this central void with raked ceilings, playing coloured light through the home with the rising and setting sun. The rhythm of colours will change with the time of day and time of year to mark the passage of the seasons.
The wrapping verandahs are designed to minimise material waste in construction, through to including offcuts of curved verandah beams to create the feature dining table.
