HOUSE OF THE YEAR
CUSTOM BUILT PROJECT OF THE YEAR
CUSTOM BUILT HOME OVER $400,000
The home is sited on top of Sugarloaf Hill and is unique in every way, with panoramic views to Frederick Henry Bay, Cremorne and Bruny Island.
The location posed a paradox; sited on a hill but with a very nautical outlook. The architect had chosen to respond with a nautically inspired series of sails that act as a dividing walls with glass infill between.
Every wall in the house bar two are curved, with some of the curved fins rising above and penetrating through the roof line, creating a stunning effect.
Although the house faces south, its environmentally friendly design, double glazed windows and insulating rated foam rendered design allows it to retain heat efficiently.
