With views defined by sweeping paddocks dotted with livestock and distant glimpses of a horseshoe shaped coastline, a centrally sited home sits embedded in the landscape with a subtlety and restraint that belies its function as a hard working family home exposed to the elements and often ferocious weather patterns.

In a celebration of the surrounding architectural and design vernacular but with a modern, contemporary interpretation, the Red Hill Farm House exudes a rural character but with an appropriateness to function imbedded deep in its design.

The design intentionally omits ornamentation seeking to minimise the palette of materials. The predominance of the vertical blackened timber cladding defines the façade materiality and, when glimpsed from within, acts to constantly remind occupants of the rural narrative.

Designed with an overriding sense of authenticity and rigour, multiple floor levels respond to the natural fall of the surrounding landscape and delineate activity, whilst a tough materiality of blackened timber, steel, glass, natural stone and concrete are featured in unrestrained sophistication balanced by a softness in the warm oak lining to the ceiling and joinery pieces.
