Mt Martha House Photo Shoot

17 Feb 2017

This site falls away steeply by 17m from front to back. The house is mostly viewed from above, from properties higher up the hill - and this was a major design consideration. The house is not necessarily recognisable as a house, nor was this of importance. A solid masonry spine anchors the house to its site and the expressive potential of architecture determines the design vocabulary. A solid masonry platform, with projecting lightweight outbuildings, anchors the house to its dramatic site. Built by James Launder with landscape by Site Design Landscape Architecture, photographs by Dianna Snape.
