AWS Designer Notes – Bluff Farm residence

News /
29 April 2013

AWS have recently conducted yet another Designer Notes video. This beautiful retreat is located in the upper Hunter Valley with a breathtaking view.

The original house and land had been in the same family for many years and, although used mainly as a weekender the owners wanted to establish a home they could eventually enjoy on a permanent basis. It was the job of architect Richard Cole to create a space with flexibility, one which was sympathetic to the natural environment.

Richard’s design split the house into three distinct functional areas – living areas facing north, and sleeping and service areas facing south.

The Vantage range of aluminium systems were utilised in this project to ensure the house felt like an extension of the environment. Large sliding doors were used in conjunction to Louvre windows which have allowed the area to open up to the surrounding rolling hills and distant horizon.

The effect of the whole is an organic and open space, full of natural light and room to breathe. It is strongly anchored to the earth’s bare bones, and absolutely true to the wishes of owner, architect and builder alike.
