Foothills House

Foothills House Strachan Group Architects

CONTEXT
Set on the slopes south of the Bombay Hills, this is a large country house for a family of 5 with strong family ties to the local farming community.
DESIGN
The low-slung forms follow the natural land contour, anchoring into the slope just below the crest to deflect and protect against the strong south-westerly wind, and providing sheltered courtyards and verandahs to the north.
The two elongated shed-like pavilions define the Living Areas from the Bedrooms with an internal garden courtyard linking the two.
Durable materials used in their “raw” state blend with the natural landscape. The base of the building is of natural stack bonded concrete block with a steel structured lightweight roof umbrella suspended over highly glazed walls.
