MILES ROAD RESIDENCE
MOLE CREEK, TAS
Classically rural in aesthetic, this modern house encapsulates key vernacular traditions to bring a farmstead feel into the 21st century. This sprawling country home at Mole Creek combines a palette of natural materials with passive solar design strategies.
A combination of bagged brick, a 45 degree hipped roof and sweeping veranda give the building an old world feel while the sustainability influence makes it essentially modern. All spaces have been designed to have both practical and sustainable uses, such as an upper floor retreat that provides a viewing platform to take in the panoramic views, whilst also acting as a solar chimney as part of the building’s heating & cooling strategy.
