60 x 6 House

60 x 6 House

60 x 6 house measures 60 metres long by 6 metres wide. The design for the home focuses towards capturing the sun's warmth and light, while optimising the sweeping vistas of the vast rural landscape beyond. A singular linear roof form stretches along the east-west axis, with 13 metre long expansive sliders in the main living area opening to the north. The main living space, private lounge, bedrooms and service areas are all accessed along the spine of the home, however they are segregated and defined by outdoor covered entertaining areas. These sheltered external spaces facilitate flow between the different sections of the building, yet also act as additional living areas throughout all seasons.
The black-stained cedar-cladding wraps around the exterior, the detailing of the entrance screen providing additional texture and privacy yet hinting towards the lush views of the countryside.
