2020 Southern Architecture Awards Winner
Scott House Mt Barker
To the distant observer, this house seems an unassuming structure backed against a vast hillside, yet the simplicity of the form belies a complex and sophisticated interplay between materials, mass and void. This house is lean and has an elemental clarity; its spatial fluidity and pared-back detailing exploit the inherent advantages of its materials – unadorned rammed earth, timber and concrete – in its specific context. The architects understand these materials in this place and have allowed them to speak for themselves in a calm and contemporary language.
