Callignee II - Regeneration

Rebuilding of a home destroyed by the Black Saturday fires, Callignee II is most deserving of the Best Residential Interior Design as it reclaims its foundations and embodies a regenerated form of original materials with a new energy of recycled and sustainable materials within an energy efficient design.

The boundaries between the exterior and interior are blurred, as the architectural form opens up with bi-fold walls and suspension bridges to physically and visually invite the outside in. This is enhanced by the effective use of the bush landscape and materials comprising of wood, stone and rusted steel being repeatedly referenced both inside and outside.

The interior design is commendable for its deliberate expression of the post-fire finishes blended with the newly regenerated interiors. It is a confident demonstration of materials, used both in their raw and natural states for cabinetry and furniture, which gives it a soul.

Honest expressive detailing with an almost handmade feel suggest a simple relaxed lifestyle connected to its landscape. Hamilton Design have created a cosy and warm, yet light and airy open home that breathes with new life.
