Winter House

Winter House is a single storey concept with a strong emphasis on high quality materials in a small (200m2) footprint. With a block size of only 400m2, a space efficient design that did not compromise on function was of great importance. Stone cladding wraps around the Western and North-Eastern sides of the home and is countered by Spotted Gum cladding to opposing areas.

↑ Boral Stone and Spotted Gum cladding give the home a rich exterior material palette.
↑ A smaller sized block means that all outdoor areas are of great importance. All rooms that face onto the outdoor space have access and a visual connection
↑ A timber deck that wraps around the East, North and West provides a convenient and beautiful thoroughfare
↑ A large outdoor room is flanked by bamboo for privacy and shade.
↑ A paved courtyard extends the outdoor areas into the garden.
↑ The kitchen has a commanding view of all living and outdoor areas
↑ Spotted gum decking and lining boards create a warm and natural outdoor living space
↑ Open plan living areas keep spaces feeling large even in this smaller home
↑ All living areas seamlessly join and interact with each other
↑ Morning Winter sun fills the Master Bedroom with warmth and light
↑ French doors to the Master Bedroom create a beautiful view to the garden
↑ High ceilings with clerestory windows let hot air escape during the Summer months, keeping the house cool
↑ Large bespoke timber stacker doors take every opportunity to let the outside in
↑ A secluded yet well connected study nook makes an efficient use of space
↑ A quiet and well positioned front lounge provides a retreat for parents
↑ As with all other living areas, the lounge has access to the leafy outdoor space
↑ A bespoke kitchen design featuring Black Tempal Caesarstone benchtops, cement tile splashback and rustic wooden shelving
↑ With the refrigerator neatly tucked away in the pantry space, the kitchen remains beautiful and functional
↑ A monolithic Caesarstone bench is the centrepiece of the kitchen and lofty high windows provide glimpses of passing clouds
↑ A strong organic palette of timber runs through the home and the bathrooms are no exception
↑ With space efficiency in this smaller home key, this well appointed ensuite provides no lack of luxury
