A Challenging Block with Breathtaking Views Presented our Design Team a Challenge to Create the Perfect Holiday Retreat

Set in the tree-lined hillside of McCrae, abutting the Arthur’s Seat reserve, this holiday home is perched beautifully to capitalize on the magnificent Port Phillip Bay views. The site presented significant design challenges including the highest Bushfire Attack Level of FZ (Flame Zone) and a steep 15m incline with 5m fall across the building footprint. This resulted in a lengthy Town Planning and CFA approval process.

This project was awarded the 2016 HIA Eastern Victoria Custom Home up to $500,000 award.

    The Highest Bushfire Rating Possible Meant a Number of Restrictions

    The BAL FZ rating dictated a restrictive footprint and very particular requirements relating to building materials and construction methods to ensure the home can withstand the worst of fire conditions. 

    The Steep Slope and Vegetation Added to the Challenge

    The dramatic rise of the terrain, significant vegetation and overall height limitations represent a significant design challenge. Our design team created a fantastic design solution that fulfils the client brief, within budget and maximizes the site’s attributes.

    Upstairs Living to Capitalise on the Panoramic Views

    The end result was to locate the open plan kitchen/family/dining and large balcony space as well as the master suite upstairs to capitalize on huge bay views while engaging with the land at the rear of the home.

    A Sharp Facade to Blend in with Nature and the Streetscape

    A sharp, contemporary façade sits comfortably into the surrounding vegetation and adds to the streetscape. A further 2 bedrooms and bathroom and living area are provided downstairs together with lots of storage to ensure a comfortable holiday home environment.
