House at Lake Connewarre Landscape


Simone Koch

Collaborators: Fiona Harrison, Tim Nicholas

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.
