Botanical Musings

New Dwelling –  Upper Blue Mountains, NSW

First the garden, then the house.


Nestled within an established cold climate garden in Blackheath, this house takes cues from Japanese architecture. It is envisioned as a series of pavilions which step through the landscape; framing select views of deciduous trees, rhododendrons and the water feature.


Touching the Earth lightly, this house will use prefab construction methods to minimise the impact of construction on the landscape while the pavilions are clad in a mix of Australian hardwood and shou sugi ban charred timber to let the house blend into in the garden.
