Located in Brisbane, Australia, this house sits on a natural rock in an area where large trees stand. Thus the house should be built with natural materials nobles. Among these materials highlights the wood, both inside and outside panels are plywood. We have also used sandstone rocks to level the ground creating small beds that contribute to improving the aesthetics of the house. The house is the family home of the director of Base Architecture.
It was hard to make the most rugged terrain like this. The solution was to let a wing of the house on the rock piles aligning creating a gap that serves as the garage and entry. The other wing is built on the rock in this wing look like reinforced concrete structure to protect the pool is naked from prying eyes by a fence made of wood painted white.
Next to this pool are open to the outside room. This room has high qualities as wood flooring or lighting integrated into the roof and casement windows that allow to fully open the hall outside, protected only by the ceiling. In the words of the architect of Base Architecture: “The elevation and the screen created by large trees allowed us to keep part of the house open to the outside and that our privacy was protected.”
