When design colludes with nature, the results are awe inspiring in this architectural showcase set atop Mount Franklin, near Daylesford, Victoria.
Constructed with a playful but harmonious variegation of geometrical shapes, with an emphasis on the circular (to match the surrounded rock scapes) and angular (to match the adjacent Alpine landscape), this Jellis Craig property has managed to quietly salute the natural environment whilst maintaining its grandeur.
Sparce concrete interiors are given warmth with walnut tinged hardwood timbers from Nullarbor Sustainable Timber while reflective glass exteriors are softened with prismatic sunrises and sunsets.
An audacious mix of designer fittings, grey school brick feature walls and multi-toned timber cladding and decking are triumphantly orchestrated to keep the eye wandering and appeal flourishing throughout each room.
We applaud the work of award winning designers Josh and Tik White of SCHWARTZWILLIAMS and their choice of eco-friendly materials in this immaculate mountaintop home.
