McBride House

The house is sited around two major trees, one of which is a striking park-scale blue gum. This tree forms a fulcrum around which the house is organised.

The house is divided into 2 wings: the main body of the house and the artists’ studio/summer house. Solar orientation and the existing trees gave rise to a flipped site layout. Instead of being ‘out the back’ the studio wing forms the approach to the main house. Along with the pool, the studio creates an entry journey. Access to the front door is via an enclosed path formed by the studio, past the pool and out onto a deck where the full view of the blue gum and the main house are revealed at the back of the site.

Country: Bunurong
