Our client desired a modern interpretation of a country-style home which provided enough space to accommodate an extended family staying during holidays. The design had to focus on outdoor living, self-sufficiency, energy efficiency and had to incorporate recycled materials. The resultant double-storey home captures the extended landscape views perfectly via an angular shaped plan affording spectacular vistas to both levels through large picture windows and outdoor decks. A large outdoor living space has been located to the east, and features a Teppanyaki bar, kitchen servery and the fire pit. Boytonrath is worthy of an award because this home has achieved all our client’s wishes and much more. The design has taken extra steps in achieving self-sufficiency by including a 27 panel 5kw photovoltaic power system. Extensive use of recycled timbers inside and out finishes this beautiful country home.
