Virginia House

The brief was for `a welcoming, friendly home in the style of an American timber house’.


In close collaboration with our client we achieved an open layout of flowing spaces whilst the architectural style of the house engages consistently with a modern and perhaps Australian interpretation of the Hamptons style. The house is developed around an asymmetric plan sheltered by a prominent, multi-faceted roof form. The house conveys solidity. It appears well grounded, which is achieved by the lower level following the topography of the site. Large timber posts and craftsman like construction convey robustness and provide a reaffirming feeling of comfort.
