Metung Project

The clients, whose interests are varied, wanted a home to fit into the allocated building envelope with minimal tree removal. It had to create the least impact on the site and be sympathetic to the local environment. They wanted two studio spaces: one to accommodate an office area and wool and book storage; the second for a piano and office area. The master bedroom with private deck area away from living areas was important to them. A large collection of artwork was to be displayed. An emphasis on the views – preferably from all habitable rooms – was essential. A guest bedroom and a large garage area with workshop space were required. A separate lounge to meals living was mandatory. The use of water harvesting and other sustainable design and construction methods were required. All this, and more, have been achieved in this award-winning design.
