The site itself presented its own unique challenge with a height difference of 14 meters from the road to the end of the lot. Instead of being daunted by the task, these challenges were turned into opportunities. Responding to this, the design for this weekend home focused on shaping the spaces for familial interaction. Tiered steps acts as the point of convergence for the home, tying multiple levels together to create a topography of spaces for its residents. Accoya slats, flamed granite and wood look tiles come together to frame the design in a clean neutral palette.
