Clifton Acres, East Gippsland
Influenced by the rational and efficient vernacular of post war Australian modernism, this house presents a bold image to the street and forges a robust relationship between the public and private realms.
The design centres around the very basic strategy of opening the house to north light & views, and limiting exposure to south / street, and presenting blank walls to the east and west. Through the living and master bedroom areas, raked ceilings maximise light penetration and natural ventilation through highlight windows, and a feature masonry wall and concrete hearth are positioned behind the wood fire for thermal mass to assist with passive heating and cooling.
