Mountain Range House
Exuberant yet carefully developed, this ‘enclosed verandah’ satisfies the clients’ brief for a space capable of accommodating large numbers while retaining the intimacy and comfort required for everyday living. Together, the material selection, simple plan layout and furnishings produce a memorable space. A strong feature is the undulating timber clad ceiling which floats above the interior. While detailing and form are less convincing on the exterior, the roof structure has created a poetic spatial play internally, helping to define areas of the large open plan space.
