Landscape - Lake Connewarre

The house was designed within the broader context of the landscape and site, four hectares of farmland running down to the banks of Lake Connewarre on the Bellarine Peninsula. The design of the building follows the land and the dramatic drop along the edge of an escarpment. It defines or draws your attention to the shift in the landscape and, when you are inside the house, there is a sense of being held out over that drop. The block was replanted with native flora so the site is integrated into the existing landscape.
