Located in 50 acres of the Australian outback, the angular “Sky High” house comes complete with views across the wilderness. The building that sits at the foot of Mount Franklin, an extinct volcano in Southern Australia, frames the view of its stunning location with floor-to-ceiling windows that run around the majority of the space.
The building also mixes elements that both harmonize and contrast with the surrounding landscape. The geometric design is an interruption into the region’s rolling hills, while the polished concrete floors and modern interior are also contrasts. The local area is referenced through the use of traditional masonry used throughout. Other features of the house include a circular pool that sits within the courtyard and a large verandah to emphasize the view.
