Kangaroo Ground Pavilion

Commendation Residential Design: New Houses $300K-500K

Designer: S L Building Designs
Builder: Owner- Builder
Photographer: Urban Angles and Impress Photography
Location: Kangaroo Ground, VIC

The Kangaroo Ground Pavilion is a simple, well resolved building which sits comfortably on the landscape and achieves spectacular 360 degree views of the Dandenongs and surrounding hills of Kangaroo Ground. The design, centred on the theory of ‘less is more’, pares back the built form to provide minimal intrusion on the landscape. This is achieved by using a simple palette of materials and colours, and low roof forms. The result is a contemporary home that offers many sustainable features.
